Intense ruby red color. The nose denotes intense, clean, pleasing, refined and elegant aromas that start with hints of cherry and violet followed by aromas of blueberry, plum, dried rose, tobacco, licorice, vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa and a hint of rubber. The mouth has good correspondence to the nose, a slightly tannic attack and pleasing crispness, however well balanced by alcohol, full body, intense flavors, good tannins. The finish is very persistent with long flavor of cherry, plum and blueberry.

Vineyards location The vineyard is located in Treiso, between Barbaresco and Alba. Exposure: south/west.
Climate The vintage 2011 begun with some snowfalls in the first two months of the year, followed by heavy rainfall in March, an average for the month of 176 mm/6.9 inches, compared to approx. 90 mm/3.55 inches in 2010. This provided a good early supply of water in the soil. April was quite warm, with temperatures over 20°C that pushed the start of the growth season forward. Begin of summer was colder than usual with a few of heavy thunderstorms; highest temperatures, in line with the season, arrived late around the second half of August, up to 35°C (90°F) and above. This was not a problem for the vines, also because of the large water reserves in the soils from late spring and early summer rainfall, but it had repercussions on the quantity of the grapes approaching veraison. For the varieties with a longer vegetative cycle, as Barbera and Nebbiolo, the rainfalls during the first week of September, together with the lowering of night-time temperatures, allowed for the reaching of excellent balance in the phenolic components of the grapes, facilitating their ripening and resulting in good balance.
Harvest Harvest begun on 10th October.
Vinification The fermentation and the maceration on the skins normally takes about 22-24 days. No selected yeasts are used. The malolactic fermentation happens naturally in French barrels coopered expressively for us by Francois Frères in Burgundy. The wine stays in these barrels for approximately 18-20 months, half of this time on its lees. 25% of the barrels used for aging this wine are new, the remaining 75% have previously been used up to 4 times. There is no filtering and no fining prior to bottling.
Alcohol 14.00% by volume
Production year 5,000 bottles
