Tasting Note:

Aromatic open red fruits. Open charming with grip and persistence, very fine-tuned sunny ripe red berries but with great detail and precision. Floats gently across the palate. A beauty. If you ask most Piedmontese growers which vineyard they would buy, money no object, the response is invariably Monprivato. A south west facing vineyard situated at 280 metres above sea level just below the town of Castiglione Falletto, the blue grey, marly silty and clayey soil has a high active limestone content. This together with gentle, traditional winemaking result in ethereal, nuanced wines of great ageing potential. Their complexity can sometimes be missed in their austere youth, but invariably blossom with age. The wines are aged in large Slavonian oak casks of 50-90 hl for 30 months
