These conditions combined with a long evolution in French and American oak barrels produce a full-bodied wine, with deep ruby red color, intense presence of mature red fruit, blackberry and cherry intermixed with toasted
notes but, gentle and balanced, harmonic and smooth, with light notes of vanilla and harmonious palate as well.
This Barolo comes from one of the most historically renowned single vineyards in the township of Serralunga d'Alba, and is situated in a splendid south-facing exposure. The meticulous care given to the vineyards together with a yield of less than 70 quintals per hectare, guarantees the highest level of quality. During its long aging in Slavonian Oak and in the bottle, the wine develops its characteristic flavors: tar (also known as "goudron" in French), black cherry, dried herbs, and spices that render the wine unique and famous.
Colour: Intense garnet-red with lively orange highlights
Bouquet: A rich bouquet of licorice, dried flowers, ripe black cherries, earth and spice, with a balsamic note of mint-leaf in certain vintages
Taste: Full-bodied, warm and intense. Dry and pleasantly tannic with mineral notes. The structure is powerful and at the same time elegant which makes the wine approachable already in its fourth year of aging, although it continues to mature in the bottle and can normally be kept at least 10 years.
Food Pairing: Meat dishes, especially braised meat (Brasato al Barolo), game, and also aged cheeses.
This noble wine proudly carries the name of its grape varietal. Just next to the more renowned Barolo and Barbaresco appellations, Nebbiolo d'Alba grows on the rolling hills in the lower Langhe and Roero. The soil is a mix of calcareous clay and sand, which gives this wine its intense bouquet, elegant and balanced structure with soft tannins.
Long-lasting and persuasive bouquet of woodland flowers and dried herbs, with hints of red berries.
Full-bodied intense smooth flavour. Tannins give the wine a good structure which is never excessive and allow it to age well for a number of years.
Red meat dishes and cheese.

“Arneis” in Piedmontese dialect means ‘mischievous child’ and perhaps this was true of the awkward antique vine “Arnesium”, which has been grown in the Roero since Mediaeval times, and later abandoned. Over the last twenty years the success of Arneis has brought about the oenological ‘rebirth’ of the beautiful Roero, which has re-established itself as home to this noble white wine, which has great personality and is ideal as an aperitif or with cold starters.
