Ispiring to the style of long ago, the grapes grown in our vineyards of Madonna Como in Alba are fermented with autoctonous yeasts, macerating for over three weeks, then matured for 12 months in 30 hectolitre casks.
Thus obtaining a characteristic wine, with extreme olfactory preculiarities, while its marked acid complexity is divine on the palate. Suited to lengthy ageing.
