Tasting Note:

More voluptuous and less chiselled than the Monvigliero, still with requisite structure but so different in shape. Well-covered, fulsome, mouth-coating bramble fruit with notes of dried orange peel, asian spices and a hint of vanilla. Solid, deep and powerful, this will need some time to come round. From Vittore’s mother side of the family, this is a vineyard that came from the Manzone estate in Monforte in 2001. The vines are 55 years old. Higher than Verduno, at over 400 metres above sea level and with browner/ red soils this yields completely different wines. After a month of gentle maceration, the wine is then aged for 3 years in large wooden vats.
