Grapes are selected from vineyards located in Castiglione Falletto, Monforte, Barolo and Novello. Vine age averages 7 to 35 years and yields are kept low. After harvesting, the grapes are gently pressed and Ffermentation is in stainless steel with daily cap
submersion for extraction of flavor and color. The wine is then aged for 24 months in casks. This 2011 scored 92 from the Wine Advocate and 92 from James Suckling who said "There's focus and beauty to this full-bodied Barolo with pure fruit, walnut and berry character. Round and velvety. Clean finish. Shows wonderful potential. Better in 2018. I like this as much as the excellent 2010." and 93 from the Wine Spectator who said "A mix of elegance and power, featuring cherry, raspberry, pepper, tar and tobacco notes. The tannins are dense and dusty on the lingering finish. Best from 2018 through 2030."
