The result of an accurate selection of grapes from the vineyard Costa Grimaldi located at Terlo, in Barolo. A great wine of the Langa, garnet red with a shade of amber, of intense and embracing fragrance, full bodied but smooth tannic taste, with a long spiced final taste.
With time it acquires complexity as the ethereal aromas of spices, truffles and leather. The tannic characteristics guarantee a long life in bottle.
The annual production is limited at few thousand bottles.
