Grapes are sourced from the Southeast facing Ronchi vineyard in the Barbaresco township. The Southeastern exposure allows for a cooler site. Hot afternoon sun and low sand content in the soil gives focused fruit with firm tannin. Fruit is harvested by hand before being cold macerated for 24 hours. 12-day fermentation with pump over at key points in the fermentation process. Natural malolactic fermentation occurs in a temperature-controlled environment before 12 months in large 25 hectoliter barrels made of Allier and Slavonian oak wood. The wine is finished in the bottle for an additional 12 months.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our Barbaresco boasts a lovely ruby color that tends to a garnet tinge. Bouquet of wild berries, white pepper and liquorice, wrapped in aromatic herbs like pine, white mint, and laurel. Tannins are firm, but supple, and represents classic Nebbiolo: power wrapped in elegance.

Other Notes
2016 was one of the best vintages in Barbaresco, highlighted by aromatically intensity, incredibly structured wines, with strong site signatures and tons of character. These wines can age for several decades.
