These Nebbiolo vines are also grown in Monforte d’Alba at 300 meters/984 feet above sea level. Maceration lasts close to two weeks and it is then fermented in stainless steel. Wine ages six months in stainless steel followed by another six in Slavonian oak casks. Intensely floral, the wine expresses notes of roses, dark cherry, plum and licorice. Tannins are drying and acidity refreshing but all in balance. Suggested pairings include prime rib, rack of lamb or mushroom lasagna.
