Produced from Barbera grapes cultivated in vineyards in the Monferrato hills in the South of the province of Asti. The South West facing vineyards are at altitudes of between 250 and 400m and the soil is clay and limestone. Grapes are hand harvested in September. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 25 – 30 degrees C. Pressed when dry and racked to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation and is then matured for a further 4-6 months in stainless steel tanks.

"A light-medium bodied red with some bright ripe fruit character, including aromas of raspberries, plums and cherries. On the palate sour cherry, raspberry coulis and soft tannins create this very approachable wine with an abundance of tangy red fruit and a savoury spiciness."
