Red - Vintage: 2017 - Size: 750 ml.
This is a fresh and fruity interpretation with a higher proportion of Croatina grapes, and very much towards the traditional style of winemaking from the region. Spontaneous fermentation, maceration and storage in French oak is followed by 12 month on the bottle. Nebbiolo 70%, Croatina 20% and Vespolina 10% Soil: Acidic pH (4,4-4,6) soil composed by vulcanic originated porfiric sand with a red/orange color.
A blend of 70% Nebbiolo, 20% Croatina and 10% Vespolina, this has aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, menthol and licorice. The aromas carry over to the smooth, medium-bodied palate, along with white pepper and orange zest while fine-grained tannins provide the lithe framework. Drink through 2023.
