The wine estate stands on the slopes of the San Biagio hill in La Morra, one of the 11 villages forming the area where Barolo wine is produced. The farm stretches out over 18 hectares (45 acres) and has belonged to the Roggero family for generations. Surrounded by splendid vineyards, it enjoys a spectacular panorama opening out onto the Langhe, a range of hills packed with history and castles.
A deep garnet red, tending to more mature shades on ageing. The nose is expansive, featuring berries, lime, jam, cooked plums. Appealing spicy and balsamic overtones stand out in the more mature wine, especially star anise, liquorice, mushrooms and dried figs, as well as hints of tobacco and leather.
A strikingly complex palate, with spicy and balsamic notes and sweet tannins clearly showing through. Appealing overtones of liquorice, tobacco and tar on the finish.
Maturing in Slovinian oak casks for no less than 30 months. Ageing in the bottle follows for 1 year, during which the tannins soften, and the floral and fruity notes develop.
