This wine is from Bussia in Monforte d’Alba, where the particular mineral component of the terroir gives the wine a great structure, an intense color, clear and enveloping tannins and a long and consistent aftertaste. At the nose we can recognize the scent of red fruits, such as raspberry and pomegranate. A wine that is adapt at the long evolution in the bottle, up to 25-30 years and more in the best vintages. Winemaking: Fermented in steel and concrete tanks under strict Temperature control (30 degrees C – 32 degrees C), post-fermentation maceration, racked after 22/25 days, decanted, and by maintaining the right temperature malolactic process is induced. A long period of maturation in big barrels on oak, thereafter a period in bottle to complete the aging. Tasting notes: The particular mineral component of the Bussia terroir gives the wine great structure and intense color, clear and enveloping tannins with a long and consistent a ertaste. The scent of red fruits such as raspberry and very ripe pomegranate blend well with spicy and balsamic notes.
