Produced primarily with Nebbiolo and Barbera grapes, combined with a
small percentage of Merlot, all coming from Rivetto’s Estates in the Alba county. The harvest
usually takes place in early October for Barbera, but it stretches to the end of the month for Merlot
and Nebbiolo. The grapes are collected in small baskets and immediately taken to the winery to be
pressed. They are then placed into special temperature-controlled vats for 12-15 days of maceration,
with frequent punching down to extract color elements. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine is
put into small oak barrel (barriques) where, after malolactic fermentation, it is aged for at least 6
month. After bottling the wine rest for a minimum of 6 months in the cellar for a total aging of one
year before shipping. Excellent with fine meat (chops, T-bone steak) roasts, game and truffle-based
dishes. Serve at 65° F.
