Grown in the vineyards of Cascina Valmenera, the heart of our estate. We call them “our stairway to heaven”, to quote Led Zeppelin, because the rows are laid out in an amphitheatre that seems to climb up into the sky. They were planted at the end of the Nineties and enjoy south-westerly exposure. Here, in the sandy marl of what was once a seabed, Nebbiolo is able to fully express it elegance and vigour.

Ruby red.

Fine and delicate bouquet with scents of rose and violet, wild strawberry and raspberry.

Dry, harmonious and nicely persistent.
