100% Nebbiolo. From a 1 hectare single vineyard in the municipality of La Morra. Situated at the foot of a centenary Lebanese
Cedar tree, on the highest South/West slope of Gattera cru. Old vines at 1000 feet ASL (300 m ASL) and rich and clay soil provide an ideal maturation for an austere and complex Barolo.
Intense garnet red color. Warm and mature nose with notes of jam, raspberry, licorice, cherry and camphor. Soft mouth of remarkable structure with fine tannins and persistence.
An aristocratic wine that finds its ideal match in game, jugged hare, braised beef, chamois, roe deer, wild boar, venison, and pigeon. Superb with dishes garnished with white truffles from Alba, like cardoon flan with fondue and duck ravioli.
