Produced with the Barbera grapes that come from Dogliani, it is a wine of great character, ruby red in colour with tones of garnet. It has an intense and mature aroma, is full bodied, has a taste of red berries and is refined by the tannins of wood, which renders it soft and complex.
The annual production is approximatively of 20.000 bottles (variables in function of the vintage that you consider).
