Stemming from the Nebbiolo grapes of the oldest vineyard of the Einaudi estates in Barolo.
A great wine which ages well, of a brilliant garnet red with touches of amber and distinctive orange tinges which intensify with age, of an intense and persistent bouquet, of great body and full taste, austere and velvety.
The tannic characteristics guarantee a long life in bottle. With time it acquires complexity as the ethereal aromas of spices, truffles and leather that substitute the fruitiness of the first years of its life.
The annual production is of 14.000 bottles.
