VINIFICATION AND AGEING
Following the traditional local winemaking practice of blending together various separate lots to compose a Barolo, we achieved a Barolo of superb quality. Despite utilising traditional winemaking practices, our house style is evident, which emphasises full-bodied wines with emphatic fruit, and optimal equilibrium among all components as well.
After maceration on the skins for some 20 days, malolactic fermentation is completed in steel. The blend takes place before bottling selecting the best expressions of the vintage.
The wine is then matured in small oak barrels for 24 months and other 6 months in bottle.
