Description: A blend of Nebbiolo and an unknown/unnamed indigenous variety whose vine age is at least 90 years old! Made without temperature control, it is stabilized by Piedmont’s cool autumn and cold winter, conserving its natural characteristics then bottled in the spring/summer as the temperature begins to rise and aged for a further 6 months. The nose is complex and fascinating with clear notes of roses, dried, black cherry, blackberries and raisins. In the mouth good tannin structure with notes of wild black cherry and plums.
