Damien Lassance, our expert, talks about this wine

Made in the region of Piedmont, in the heart of the Langhe and Monferrato winegrowing area, this wine contains 85% Barbera and 15% Nebbiolo. The grapes are handpicked and very carefully selected, spread out on tables in the cellar.
Controlled-temperature vinification is followed by ten days of pellicular maceration with daily turning (remuage). Afterwards, the wine is matured in oak barrels for three months.
