The Wine’s Story

This site produce a very different wine, compared to the more backward and tight Montestefano bottling, as it exposure to the sun is more generous and its soils slightly different. In our opinion, this gorgeous Barbaresco, exemplifies why Nebbiolo is a unique grape variety. The handling of tannins is done to perfection here and the impressive mid-palate is lush and sexy, while acidity and minerality create liveliness on the lengthy finish. When encountering this wine for the very first time, we immediately became friends for life.
