A spicy note comes through from the Slavonian oak, but just a touch... predominant fruit cherry, raspberry and strawberry. Harmonious and refined.

Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
The color is brilliant ruby red with dark purple highlights. The bouquet is rich in red berry fruits, plum jam, cherries in liqueur, with subtle scents of vanilla, black pepper, and blackberry and blackcurrant jam. On the palate the wine is velvety, full and very harmonious. This wine’s outstanding smoothness is due to rather contained acidity and a mature, unaggressive tannic structure.
Vineyard Notes
Vineyard location: Neive and Neviglie. Total vineyard surface: Ha 4.78 Ha.. Exposure: South / South-West. Soil: Tortonian, rich in calcareous blue marl. Plants per hectare: from 3900 to 6500 (approx.). Vine training system: Guyot with 7-8 buds.
Production Notes
each grape variety undergoes alcoholic fermentation separately in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 28°C for 15-20 days. When non-DOC/DOCG wines are drawn off, they are transferred to other 80-100 hl wooden barrels where malolactic fermentation takes place. The five different types of wine are subsequently blended in a steel tank and then the final wine is transferred to a French oak barrel, where it ages for nine months.
Food & Wine Pairing
Perfect with pasta, rice dishes, grilled red and white meats and mature cheeses. It is ideal with both Italian and international cuisine.
More Information
The estate was established in 1920 by Giovanni Mainerdo, who, fueled by a great passion for wine, began vinifying small batches of grapes from certain areas of particular prestige in different municipalities in Neive, Barbaresco and Serralunga d'Alba.
