100% Nebbiolo of the Michet and Lampia subvarieties (the same as in Barolo) grown at Ornati, outside the Barolo zone, on 2.7 ha (6.6 acres) of 35% sand/40% silt/25% clay at 400 meters (around 1,312 feet) above sea level. Exposure is southwest, gradient 25%. Vines are rather old (20 years on average). Fine-tuned 10 months in 2nd-year French oak barriques; round, with well balanced tannins and intense, persistent aromas of brier rose and peach pits.

Ratings & Reviews
91 Points - James Suckling (2017 Vintage):
"There’s some really pretty sour-cherry lift here, as well as racy pomegranate. Fortunately, the medium-bodied palate isn’t in the least tart; in fact it's surprisingly round and generous. Remains a vibrant, edgy wine. Drink now." - (16 Aug, 2019)

Wine Spectator Magazine (2017 Vintage):
"A bright, fruity version, boasting cherry, plum, walnut skin and tar flavors. Finishes with tough tannins and a hint of sweet fruit. Drink now through 2024. 2,400 cases made, 250 cases imported." - BS (Issue Web Only - 2019)
