Winemaking: The grapes are sourced from vineyards located in the heart of the Roero area, in Santo Stefano Roero, planted with 4.500-5.000 vines per hectare on a clayey limestone soil. The vines, trained with the Guyot method, have an average age of 27 years. Vinification starts with the de-stemming of the grapes and subsequent soft pressing, followed by a slow alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a temperature ranging from 14 to 16 °C to preserve the freshness and intensity of the fruit.
