  • Growing

    Luigi and Fiorina have always tended their vines with the utmost care. There is an episode that really proves their care. Summer of 2008, two days after a serious hailstorm that hit Serralunga: their vineyards showed no signs of damage because the couple had ‘cleaned’ every single bunch to make sure ruined berries wouldn’t affect the rest of the cluster.

  • Vintage 2019 and winemaking

    2019 was marked by an early bud break, late flowering and a progressively slow ripening. In Serralunga d’Alba, fruit is usually picked in mid-October, with a delicate fermentation in open-top tini followed by submerged (cappello sommerso) maceration.

  • Tasting Notes

    A noble garnet hue also anticipates aromas of red fruits, candied flowers and cedar lying on hints of leather and spices. Warm, soft and dry, it has full-bodied tannins, but balanced by a fresh and gentle acidity.
