Tasting Note:

Radiant yet heady fruit. Very “Verduno” in style for its perfumed, explosive aromatics. The tannins are a little less silky and more edgy than those of Monvigliero but this is all part of the fun, character and energy of this wine, pairing well with the hugely joyful, gregarious ripe cherry and violet-tinged fruit.

A south-east facing vineyard from Verduno, a commune influenced by the close proximity to the river where there are big day/night temperature differences that help build up aroma in the wines. Aged for three years in large slavonian oak casks.
