In the municipality of La Morra
100% Nebbiolo for Barolo
Historical and iconic vineyard in the municipality of La Morra, purchased by our family in 1969, and which boasts an excellent south-west exposure and an altitude of approximately 280 meters (919 feet) at the highest part. The soil consists of sandstone and calcareous conglomerates, hence its name “rocche” (rocks), which provide good water drainage.
Year of Planting
From 1970 to 1983.
The grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel wine vats, equipped with automatic pump-over systems, for a period of 25-30 days. The wine then undergoes at least three years of aging in large-capacity (5,000 liters) Slavonian oak barrels.
On the palate, this wine is warm, persistent, and harmonious. The greater presence of sand compared to the upper part of the Cru imparts ethereal aromas of great finesse with floral notes of rose and violet. The wine is reminiscent of sweet spices and has a good minerality and extremely elegant tannins.
