Nebbiolo d’Alba 2001
Classic garnet red in color. On the nose, intense, sweet, refined notes emerge of violets, black cherry, and licorice. On the palate the wine is surprisingly round and full. Warm, evolving, soft, with big body, and a tannin of rare elegance and lightness that doesn’t diminish any of the other elements, but provides structure. The finish is triumphant with red fruits, and a composed acidic vein. Vinified in stainless steel and matured in barrique for about 18 months. Wine of a superior class. 300 cases made.
Barbera d’Alba Superiore 2001
Ruby red color. Intense nose, characterized by toasted oak and black, ripe fruits such as blackberries and plums. On the palate, the wine is warm, concise, and rich, with a sweetness that extends itself into a refreshing and balancing acidity. The finish is dry, long and accompanied by notes of balsam, mint and vanilla. Aged in barrique for 18 months. 390 cases produced.
Langhe Rosso Pedrocha 2000

All the components are well-integrated in this product made from a blend of Barbera and Nebbiolo grapes that are worked separately and cut when the wine has already matured, the percentage and composition varying in relation to the year. 230 cases produced.
