Plants are trained with guyot method, with an average density of roughly 4800 units per hectare. All the different crus are vinified and aged separately with slightly different processes to underline the singular characteristics of each parcel and terroir.

About the wine

Tasting notes

On the nose explosive, opulent, charming and immediate. Crushed red berry fruit, white pepper, chalk, mint and rose petal and tobacco. On the palate it is classic, rich, powerful, with notes of Alpine herbs and a leather finish. The purity of the fruit and overall energy here are captivating. Tannins are already well-integrated. It’s a gorgeous wine in the making.

The Grape

Nebbiolo

Often referred to as the king of red grapes, Nebbiolo is responsible for some of the greatest wines in the world. The regions of Barbaresco and Barolo, in Piedmont, Italy, create the most revered expressions of the variety and have set the benchmarks for the world over. Nebbiolo is quite light in colour, dry and delicate but packs a punch in aroma and flavour with notes of rose, tar, cherry, red berries, blood orange, licorice, leather, terracotta and earthy herbals. These wines have high acidity and high tannins, making them extremely age worthy that deepen in complexity over decades. Simply stunning wines!
