These grapes come from the vineyard Ravera in Novello at a height 370 mt above sea level, the soil is marl - calcareous with a tendency to clayey, with a good permeability. The vineyard has a very good South exposure.

The vineyard is composed of Nebbiolo (Michet, Lampia and Rosè) with Italian cloning material. The training system is Guyot with 5.000 plants per hectare.

The wine making process is in the traditional way, where for 15 days “rimontaggi and follatura” take place i.e. the must is pumped over the cap several times a day to avoid drying out, and also the cap is mechanically broken up. This happens at a temperature of 30-35 °C to optimize extraction. The wine is then drawn off, and left in steel vats for 4 months, then is matured in oak casks for 30 months. Then up to today the wine is kept in the bottle in our underground cellar where there is a constant temperature of 16°C.

A ruby red colour with amaranth and brown reflexes, an evident perception of good fruit appeals to the nose. Hints of tabacco, rose, cherry and cacao. Full body, soft and matured tannins, able to wrap the mouth in an elegant style. In this Barolo you can appreciate the elegance of the nebbiolo from Novello and the powerful from the 2015 vintage. Lovely now and still to 2045.
