After a manual harvest, the grapes undergo an extensive cuvaison and then are racked into a combination of large “botte” and second year French barrique for at least three years of aging prior to being bottled.
Dark, inky nose. Wine develops on the palate with leather, tabacco, little bit of cedar, and dark undertones. Long lingering finish befitting of Gattinara. Contemplative wine due to its powerful profile. Matches well with a nice medium bodied cigar
