100% Nebbiolo. A single proprietary (2.2 hectares) vineyard in the Villero cru, in the municipality of Castiglione Falletto.
(Therefore outside the municipality of La Morra) It is one of the most historical and prestigious hillsides of the Barolo appellation. The vineyard is differentiated by calcareous and micronutrient-rich soil. Particularly compact clay, elevated average age vines and southern exposure at an altitude of 1000 feet ASL (300 m ASL) results in a powerful, complex wine.
A Barolo of high standing, both austere and complex. Deep red garnet in color. Delicately spiced bouquet (notes of eucalyptus, licorice and menthol), mature fruit (liqueur soaked cherries, blackberries and prunes) and hints of violets and medicinal herbs. Powerful on the palate, lightly acidic and fresh. Lasting finish.
An aristocratic wine that finds its ideal match with 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.
