Tasting Note:

Vivid lively flavours illuminate the palate. Crispy cherry fruit with hints of herb, flower and strawberry. Classic Basadone with a little extra backbone to it. Engaging, juicy, nicely-proportioned and easy to enjoy. 100% made from the red Pelaverga grape, a rare variety only found in the Verduno commune of Barolo that Castello di Verduno saved from extinction in 1972. The vineyards are south-east facing and the white soils are mainly composed of limestone. The vinification is short and the wine is aged in steel tank for 9 months to give a floral, elegant and refreshing wine
