Unoaked still red wine
Location of the vineyards: Solinga Valley (Canneto Pavese).
Soil: gravel-sand soil.
Vineyards: vineyards facing south on a steep hillside.
Grapes: Croatina, Barbera and Ughetta di Solinga. Percentages of each grape can vary from vintage to vintage.
Vinification: we hand-harvest the grapes, carefully selecting the best ones. The clusters are destemmed and crushed. The resultant must ferments with the skins for about 8 days. The wine is then racked and put in concrete vats for 6 months. Once bottled, the wine is stored horizontally in a dark cellar for some months before release.
Tasting notes: bright ruby red colour with violet highlights. Nose with dog rose and wild fruits notes, and freshly harvested hay hints. Well-rounded, velvety and harmonious on palate. Long finish.
Pairing suggestions: very food-friendly wine, it’s great with bold-flavoured pasta or risotto and roasted meat.
Service temperature: best served at 18 °C in a glass with a large bowl.
Available formats: 0,75 l bottle.
“Tu lascerai ogne cosa diletta
e questo è quello strale
che l’arco de lo esilio pria saetta.
Tu proverai sì come sa di sale
lo pane altrui, e come è duro calle
lo scendere e ‘l salir
per l’altrui scale”
Paradise, Canto XVII, 55-60
