Our oenologists' opinion
Amber ruby colour with copper highlights, clear and shiny; open nose with notes of cocoa, plum brandy and fig confit, nutmeg; supple attack, fairly full, with red fruits in brandy, fairly velvety tannins, medium body; vinous; fairly firm but sapid finish, character with spices, plum gratin, nice evolutionary notes, frank, good balance, good length with tension and a hint of cigar.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Domain and appellation
We are in Piedmont, an Italian region with a strong vocation for wine, in the province of Asti, the land of Asti and Moscato d'Asti. The municipality of Calosso, located about twenty kilometres south of the town of Asti. Destemming, gentle crushing, fermentation and maceration on the skins for about 30 days. After 6 days of maceration with at least twice a day pumping over for greater extraction of colour and varietal aromas. Submerged cap-maceration for 20-25 days. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is kept in oak barrels for 24-30 months with weekly tasting and analysis to ensure that it is ageing well. Aging: 2 years in oak barrels and 1 year in bottle.
