Obtained from the grapes of Nebbiolo that come from Cannubi (Barolo) at 220 m. of altitude, positioned at South and South-East, where the land is composed of grey and white Sant’Agata marne, rich in sand.
A wine of great class that expresses the elegance of the territory, of a brilliant garnet red turning slightly amber with time, exuberant in its fragrance of fruit and spices, of great body, full and velvety with a long final taste of goudron and spices.
The tannic characteristics guarantee a very long life in bottle in the best vintages.
The annual production is of few thousands bottles (variable in function of the vintage).
