Tasting Note:

From the commune of Treiso a south east facing vineyard at 400m altitude, one of the highest parts of Barbaresco. The soils are mostly limestone with some blue Marl. The site is late ripening, usually picked ten days after the others. All of this makes for a wine of stature, freshness and definition. Racy, clean, chiselled lines, gripping bright red berry, victoria plum and damson fruit. Firm in structure but with a beautifully lifting, vital fruit character. Aged for two years in 25hl slavonian oak casks. 4000 bottles are made.
