Winemaking : Harvested by hand in boxes in September/October. The varieties are pressed and vinified separately according to their individual characteristics. Traditional fermentations with daily pumping of the must over the cap for at least 15 and up to 30 days, depending on the variety. The wines are then drawn off, and the Dolcetto is transferred into steel tanks while
the Barbera and Nebbiolo mature for 12 months in casks of French oak holding 25hl and/or second/third-fill French oak barriques. The wines are then blended before being cellared for a further six months in stainless steel tanks. Cellared in Bordeaux bottles with natural corks for another 6 months prior to release.
With its intense varietal red color, the wine brings together and highlights all the aroma and tasting qualities of the three different varieties. Rich red and black fruits with sandalwood and light spice with balanced acidity.
