Deep garnet red with bright hues.
The bouquet is intense and complex, offering a wide range of red fruit aromas with floral and spicy notes.
This wine shows the elegance and charm that only Nebbiolo grapes can offer with flavours that are robust, rich and austere.
2008 was cool and wet in the first part of its cycle. After a moderate winter, spring and summer were cooler than usual with more rain.
The second half of August saw temperatures rise and the end of the rain, but the nights remained cool. The big diurnal temperature differences meant fresh flavours were preserved.
Thanks to these conditions the grapes were able to ripen perfectly before harvest in the last 20 days of October.
