100% Nebbiolo. Historic wine of the winery coming from the carefully selected blend of the Monfalletto Estate vineyards in the town of La Morra. Age of vines are between 15 to 50 years, all with South /East and South/West exposures giving the perfect grapes and harmonious ripeness. The clayey and calcareous soils add elegance and complexity. Magnesium oxide and
manganese in the soil facilitate the maturation of soft and dense tannins. Altitude between 800-1000 feet ASL (250- 300 M ASL).
Intense garnet in color, the nose shows floral and spicy notes perfectly blended: tobacco, cherries, cocoa and fresh raspberry highlights. The palate is rich, full-bodied and elegant.
An aristocratic wine that finds its match with game, jugged hare, braised beef, chamois, saddle of venison, wild boar, deer and pigeon. Superb with dishes garnished with white Alba truffle: cardoon flan with fondue and duck ravioli.
