TASTING NOTES
The 2016 harvest was certainly one of the longest in terms of duration in recent years. Below average temperatures and abundant rains delayed the vegetative phase and generated a good water reserve. Summer was not particularly fall, and the grapes ripened slowly and completely. Furthermore, the hailstorms of late summer did not hit the area of ​​La Morra, leaving a very healthy Nebbiolo to harvest at the end of October. Aromas of berries, cedar and undergrowth guide the nose. In the mouth it is juicy, rich in morello cherry, star anise and toasted hazelnut together with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Drink from 2023 to 2033.
