Grown in vineyards in the subarea of Bussia in Monforte d’Alba.
The balance between the clayey and calcareous elements in the soil, the high presence of magnesium and microelements, the temperature ranges of the altitude and location of the valley mouth favour the essentials, in these grapes, of particular fruity notes.
Non-invasive winemaking, lengthy maceration, and ageing in casks of 30 and 60 hectolitres (60 and 120 kegs) produce a velvety wine with smooth tanicity.
