Pinot Nero - Chardonnay
Area of origin
Langhe. The vineyards are located on the hilly ridge that follows Strevi to Castino; areas located at an altitude between 250 and 450 meters above the sea level. The soils that characterize our Cuvée can be defined as an amalgam of gray-whitish marl with a strong limestone component. The vineyards located in the Sessame area benefit from the continuous ventilation of the “Marino”, a wind that blows from the Ligurian coast and gives the fruit a distinctive complexity. Training system: Guyot Plant density: between 4000-5000 yield per hectare Average production: 80 tons Average age of vines: 25 years.
Late August, beginning of September exclusively by placing whole bunches in small cases.
Permanence on the yeasts: minimum of 36 months Degorgement à la glace after a minimum of 36 months.
Sight: the color is a straw yellow with golden highlights demonstrating a very fine and persistent perlage. Olfactory: the nose reveals the classic aromas of bread crust as well as a mineral note that hints at flint. As the wine acclimates to the glass, the character of the cuvée emerges, conveying yellow fruit, currant, delicate wisteria, and slightly roasted hazelnuts. Taste: this wine is crisp, savory, structured and fresh.
It is recommended to go against the grain with this one, combining it with main courses, preferably raw meats, tempura, seafood, and vegetables with intense flavor. White truffle and aged cheeses are always welcome.. Serve at 4-6°C
