A Super Piemontese blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo and Barbera Grapes. It is almost a purplish blue hue with an inviting nose and full body. Scents of green pepper, ripe red pepper, bilberry, blackberry, licorice and chocolate emerge as the wine opens. The well rounded and quietly confident nature is best explained by the mix of vines. The youngest were planted in the 1980’s and the oldest have presided since the 1940’s. This breadth is further enhanced by the aging process which employs both softer Slavonian oak and a bolder French oak. After a soft pneumatic controlled pressing and de-stemming process, the winemaking embarks with traditional malolactic fermentation and aging in the special blend of French and Slavonian oak. Typically, it ages 18 months in large barriques, 6 in small barriques and 12 months in the bottle prior to release. Decant and serve at 60-65F.
