The vineyard

This vineyard in the municipality of Treiso, with its light and compact soil, gives the wine a linearity and elegance of structure that has always been its main feature. The cru enjoys a higher altitude and exposure to winds, which help create an elegant and mineral Barbaresco with a typical spicy note, making it recognisable over time.

The vinification

Meticulous selection of the best grapes in the vineyards and in the cellar is followed by spontaneous alcoholic fermentation using indigenous yeasts. After long maceration on skins (traditionally two months with submerged cap), the wine is racked into French barriques and large barrels where it completes malolactic fermentation. Neither filtration nor fining takes place at the time of bottling. A further year’s rest in the bottle allows the wine to fulfil its full expressive potential.
