Vinification

Picked by hand into small 20kg boxes in the first 10 days of October. The traditional-style vinification lasting 30 -40 days takes place partly in wooden vats and partly in concrete tanks, pumping the must over the floating cap 2-3 times a day for the first 15 days without the addition of yeasts. During maceration on the skins for a further 15-20 days, the ancient practice is followed of using wooden staves to completely submerge the cap of skins into the new wine while it is still undergoing fermentation.

Aging

In large wooden vats and casks holding 25 and 50 hectoliters for 18-24 months in pursuit of the finesse and elegance that are typical of Barolo, then a further stay in concrete casks for 6-12 months. Maturation in the bottle follows for at least 9-18 months prior to the wine’s release.
