Wine Enthusiast:

"Red berry, white pepper, crushed herb and a balsamic note lead the nose on this elegant red. The tense, mid-weight palate offers raspberry, tart cherry, anise and clove framed in taut, polished tannins and bright acidity."

Product Description:

"This is both delicate, fine and structured for the long term. Reminds one of the great appellations of Burgundy. This flagship is made from 2.2Ha of vineyards in the Ghemme DOCG located in the villages of Ghemme and Romagnano Sesia. Soils are a soft alluvial mixture left by the retreat of the Mount Rosa glacier after the last Ice Age and further erosion of the Alps by the Sesia river. The soils are mostly sand, granite and clay with a high content of iron, granite and quartz. Aging: 48 months in big Slavonian oak casks (25-30 hl) and in bottle for a least two years." -Importer
