Designation of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin
This wine is the result of experimentation and it demonstrates that the Langhe hills are well-tailored to the production of quality wines.
It is a bright and intense purple-red, and its flavour is composed of mallow and cherries blending with the tobacco and vanilla which are characteristic of the barrique.
It has good body and personality which allow aging for many years.
We recommend drinking it from the third year onwards.
