||Cesare Pavese in his book "The moon and the bonfires", described the ritual magic of the fire to chase away the "masche" in the days before the harvest, describing it as the most magical time of the year. We dedicated this vineyard to magic, rediscovering an old story found in the 80s when two stones were found anthropomorphic at the head of a row of an old vineyard, called "camongin" on the hill of Vesime, the last survivors of twenty-four carved couples who marked the landscape of the vineyard.

||Halfway through fermentation, when the Nebbiolo is on its skins, a delastage is made by separating the wine from the skin of the grapes and passing it on the skins of the Barbera in contact for at least 2 hours. After this passage, the wine is put back on its original skins, those of Nebbiolo, after the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is macerated in submerged cap for up to 60 days, here the magic happens: the wine independently carries out the malolactic fermentation, the tannin softens, the acidity balances with the body becoming of a disarming elegance, so elegant that it is almost ready to drink.

||Passed in large casks of 1 year, the complexity and structure of the wine find their perfect size.
