Barolo wine is born in these land but we dedicated love and meticulous work for the entire year.
We start with the winter pruning of the vineyards (“guyot” method), followed by other jobs of allegation, cleaning and cutting of the vine until up to an accurate selection of the best bunches during harvest.
Then the process of the product’s transformation begins: wine-making starts in the Barolo winery with pressing and the traditional fermentation of about thirty days.
The entire philosophy of our Barolo is rigorously traditional, with fairly lengthy macerations followed by long maturations of about 18 months in 30 or 50-hectolitre wooden barrels and 6 months’ bottle ageing before release.
It can be enjoyed after a few months in the bottle, but will continue improving and developing its elegance during the years… It is the true jewel of Italian and international enology.
