Production Methods



Certified Organic

Wine made from grapes grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides in the vineyard. Certified in the country of origin.

Tasting Notes

Classic Cannubi which is a vineyard site in the municipality of Barolo. The soils are filled with clay, fossils, chalk and loam and are located at an elevation of 250 m. The fruit was de-stemmed and then fermented with indigenous yeasts. A full-bodied red wine that you can age for a solid decade or two. Pair with roasted or braised meats.

The texture on the palate is divine, medium to full. There is no fining or filtering of this wine so please decant as aged wines naturally have slight particulate matter.
