TASTING NOTE

A garnet red colour. Ethereal bouquet, intense tar with a scent of dried flowers and a mineral note. A rich palate, balance and mature tannins contribute to its harmoney, distinction and intensity. A remarkably classy wine, with exceptional richness and tipicity.

Sourced from the Ascheri family's finest vineyard - Sorano in Serralunga d' Alba - during mid to late October. The grapes are all picked by hand before being transported to the winery as quickly as possible. Vinified in a modern style, 15 days at 26° C in steel tanks, then 6 months in steel and 28 months in Slavonian oak. After blending and 10 months longer in bottle, the result is a more modern style Barolo that does, however, retain the hallmarks of great Barolo, power and elegance.
