This superb Barolo Riserva is the result of an immense love for nature and a careful tilling of the land. The vineyards are located in the south western part of Piedmont, at La Morra d’Alba in the ancient county of “Langhe.” During the harvest, which takes place towards the end of October, only the best grapes are selected through a meticulous process of hand-picking. This wine comes in limited quantities, and undergoes aging for five years with three of those years in oak casks of Slavonic origin. Its color is typically ruby red with nuances of garnet and orange reflections. Intense fruity bouquet mixed with spices and licorice, velvety flavor and smooth taste. All of the above truly makes this Barolo a first class wine.
