Area: Northern – Piedmont, 3.500-5.000 vines per hectar
Altitude: 320-420 meters (1.050-1.360 ft.)
Exposure: South – South-West
Varietal composition: 100% Nebbiolo
Yield output: max. 6500 kg per hectar
Soil: rocky and abundant minerals of iron which give the tipical reddish colour to the indigenous rock
Climate: typical of the piedmont area, in respect to that of the plain. It permits an even distribution of precipitation between both spring and autumn, and a ventilation of the vineyard supported by almost daily “descending” winds brought about by the Alpine bow. In the winter, snow is frequent, which supports the slow process of sedimentation of the soil
Harvest: first part of October
Winemaking: crushed and macerated for about 15 days in stain-less steel tanks at controlled temperature. The wine is aged for 4 years. 3 years in oak casks of different origin and sizes, then rests in the bottle for 8 months
