"100% Nebbiolo, with 22 days of skin contact. Cask sample. Will be bottled September 2016, after which it will be aged for a further three years.
Just mid ruby with the beginning of orange. Savoury and minerally cherry nose with a touch of oak. Real concentration on the palate, but with an almost featherlight mouthfeel. Lots of tension between acidity, soft perfumed fruit and firm, firm tannins. 17/20 points. (WS)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
About 300 million years ago the Valsesia Supervolcano exploded, erupting material emerging from the depths of the earth. On this substrate, among others, the Novara hills were formed by the deposit of morainic materials derived from the melting of the glaciers. Precisely on this precious land the first vineyard was planted. The vineyards are located in three areas. The first to be planted was the Vigna del Golf, which covers about one hectare around the estate. On a small, south-facing hill, historically known as Vigna San Quirico, is the vineyard which provides both the grapes, as well as the name, for the prized Nebbiolo cru. Finally, on a large sunny vineyard of six acres in the hills, is the renowned DOCG Ghemme territory.
