Description: During the ripening of the grapes we thin out the bunches to optimize the yield and then hand-select them before they undergo soft crushing. Selected yeasts that respect the fragrant aroma of the product are added to the must. At the end of temperature-controlled fermentation, the wine is drawn off and racked. The wine spends at least two years in oak barrels. It is then prepared for bottling and bottle refinement of up to a year before being released on the market, according to regulations, no sooner than the fourth year after the harvest.This Barolo has a brilliant, garnet red with good intensity, with slight garnet/orange highlights.
