Piedmont / Italy
Nebbiolo / Croatina / Vespolina / Uva Rara
Hand harvested from vines between 20-100yrs old at 400m altitude among steep hills in the middle of woods on porphyry-rich volcanic soils in the Boca appelation
Destemmed and co-fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel tank with a two-week maceration
The wine is pressed by hand in a small torchio press into a single 1700-liter Austrian oak botte (from Pauscha) where it ages for a year
The wine is bottled without filtration and aged for another year
A wine of incredible complexity and poise, with notes of aromatic herbs, earth and gentle spices. A thin palate withrefined tannins, and a fresh, fruit forward length.
