The soil peculiarities, the climatic conditions from its south/southeasterly exposure straddling the ridge of the hill, the resting period in small oak casks and lengthy ageing in the bottle give the Barbaresco from this vineyard particular elegance in the fruity notes and roundeness of the tannins.
The clay-rich sandstones of Gianmatè Vineyard give the grapes, therefore the wine organoleptic characteristics, and an aromatic complexity unlike those obtained from the remaining section of the Basarin hill. With scents of vanilla, an austere tannin and considerably pleasant persistence on the palate.
