Tasting Note:

From Vittore’s mother side of the family, this is a vineyard that came from the Manzone estate in Monforte in 2001. Higher than Verduno, at 400 metres above sea level and yielding completely different wines. Mores fleshy, tannic and compact than the Monvigliero, structured but velvety. Dark berry fruits are accompanied by a more savoury, earthy character, notes of plum and plum stone, herb and undergrowth with hint of iron. Smart, deep and impressive.
