Details

Ideally drink till 2032. Decant 2 hours

A beautiful purple/ blue colour immediately promises a sophisticated experience. On the nose there is ripe, jammy fruit with floral hints and a little spice mixed with cherries, tobacco and leather. On the palate, these flavours follow through with a tremendous mix of ripe fruit, cinnamon and vanilla. The tannin is rich and silky with great acidity to balance. The finish is luxuriously long as you would expect for this exceptional Barbera. Match with steak, goose, truffles, game, risotto and rich smoked cheese
.
The Castello di Verduno is one of the top vineyards in the region with a perfect combination of terroir and aspect to produce the highest quality fruit. The philosophy is to keep intervention to a minimum whilst making sure that the fruit is nurtured to produce the best berries possible. Hand harvested to ensure the best and ripest fruit is used, the fruit is macerated and fermented in stainless steel for 25 days. It is matured for 26 months in oak casks before spending a further 8 months in steel tanks. It is bottled without any filtration (hence the need for careful decanting) and left for 2 additional years prior to release.
