Story: This Barolo wine is the succeeded attempt of Stefano, Renato's son, to combine the power of Barolo, the olfactory expressiveness of the Nebbiolo grape variety from Valtellina and the Burgundian experience in the use of barrel aging. Grapes from the Roncaglie Vineyard located in the Santa Maria hamlet in La Morra owned by the mother. Roncaglie soil is well known for providing elegance. This Barolo wine is vinified according to the father's style, revisited in some passages to obtain maximum roundness and pleasantness. Label designed by Stefano: essential, frank, minimal (aimed at reflecting wine and character).
Forget the feud between modernists and traditionalists. It is time to focus on NEBBIOLO.
