Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC
Harvest takes place in the first half of October. Grapes are hand-picked and placed in 20 kg crates. 100% Nebbiolo, guyot pruning, elevation of 300m.
Mixed soil, from Bricco Delle Passere vineyard, with southeast exposure.
Once in the cellar the grapes are de-stemmed and gently pressed. The must is fermented in steel tanks in contact with the skins at a constant temperature between 26° and 28° C. Numerous pump-overs maximize color extraction and tannin. After the first decantation, malolactic fermentation begins. The wine matures ‘sur lie’ in still tank, in order to obtain longevity, structure and aroma.
