Production process
The soil in this area on the border between the town of Alba and Diano d’Alba thus making this wine well suited to produce a great Barbera, floral and elegant. We decided to make the wine coming from this vineyard in a very clean expression by avoiding the use of wood contact completely and always closing the bottle with a glass stopper.

Serving recommendations
The wine is usually placed on the market in the month of July following the harvest. It should be drink at a temperature of 18 °C / 64 °F and accompanied by salami, mortadella, and pairs great also with richer fattier meats: it plays off the fresh meat nuances of this wine. It is recommended to consume young but will maintain a good level of quality up to three or four years.

The nose is fruity, gourmand and well-built. It reveals notes of hazelnut and toasted notes associated with small notes of backberry, plum, cherry, fleshy cassis as well as touch of blond tobacco and slight hints of nutmeg. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a beautiful suavity and acidulous frame, minerality, precision, gourmandise as well as a good maturity of the fruit. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, acidulous/ripe redcurrent ans small notes of Quetsche plum associated with small touches of cornflower/ lily as well as slight hints of almond (in the background). Tannins are fine and elegants.
