This robust and austere wine is obtained only in the best years by a rigorous selection of Nebbiolo grapes (known locally as Chiavennasca) from the best grapevines in the Sassella sub-area. The wine is matured for four years in small Slavonic oak barrels, and develops a particularly well-balanced character after two or three years. It is a grainy red colour with a tendency towards orange. Its aroma is intense due to a characteristic hint of oak. It tastes well-balanced, velvety and robust.

How to serve it
