Scents and finesse.
Several vineyards, one only wine.
The grapes come from several vineyards based in Canale and in Santo Stefano Roero municipality. The mga are Mompellini, Loreto and San Grato.These several vineyards are of different ages and are basically placed on sandy soils with small quantities of clay; the exposures vary from south-west, east and west.
The grapes are harvested at the best state of ripeness depending on each vintage, on the plants and on the exposure. Wine is the union of different fermentations and macerations which last a couple of weeks; the period can change based on the vintage and on its climatic conditions.
After the required aging in casks, the wine is bottled in the waning moon of autumn following the harvest. Finally after a further rest in bottle for almost one year, the wine is ready to be sold.
