Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon and Nebbiolo: these are the grapes which, vinified and aged separately in barriques, tonneaux and 15-hectolitre tanks, for about a year, give us this Monferrato DOC.
Each grape variety gives the wine different nuances, but all three are grown on the same hill, Chiesavecchia, in a hamlet of Calamandrana.
This is a warm, pervasive wine, silky smooth on the palate, persistent and elegant, with delicate tannins. Intriguing right from the bouquet.
Fresh filled patisserie, “tajarin” with truffle or meat sauce, main courses featuring red meat, from braised cuts to roasts, through to lamb and game.
