Tasting Notes

VERY LIMITED: From a 1-hectare plot of 65-year-old vines of the historic ‘Villero’ cru in the village of Castiglione Falletto. Soils here are clayey with calcareous sediments, rich in iron. Nebbiolo Michet, Lampia and Rosé clones are grown here. Just 5,000 bottles produced.

The color is intense garnet red with ruby ​​reflections, with a bright and lively appearance. The scent is complex and rich in hints of fruit, flowers, spices, undergrowth and plums. It has an intense flavor with sweet tannins and a long aftertaste.

Food Pairings

In it youth try with braised beef cheeks to counteract the firm tannins. As the wine ages, it will pair with softer veal and mushroom type dishes or mushroom rissoto.

Third Party Reviews

“Bright garnet in the glass, its intense framboise sauvage aroma allied to leafy lightness and earthy depth of minerality shine. Dried cherry and tar emerge with time: a classic Barolo definition. The attack is relaxing and dense with lots of sucrosity. Firm, dusty tannins, large and ripe, are accompanied by crisp acidity and great length.” – 94 Points (Decanter January 2022)
