Vinification

We only vinify grapes sourced from our vineyards.

Nebbiolo grapes destined to become our Nebbiolo d’Alba are vinified for a shorter period than those destined to become Barolo. This results in a wine that is fresher, less complex, but no less harmonious and elegant, with a beautiful balance of tannin and acidity.

Manual harvesting, destemming, soft pressing and skin maceration for 10 days under controlled temperature. Refined for 12 months in barriques and 6 months in bottle.
