It shows vibrant and intense hints on the nose, mainly herbs and spices: thyme, cloves, black pepper and a dash of smoke. A vortex of dark and ripe fruits envelop the palate, like prunes and black cherries. An interesting note of lemon marmalade is surprising. Extremely approachable in its youth, although supported by a powerful structure, with a vibrant and deep finish.
100% Nebbiolo from the Sperss vineyard in Serralunga
Highly favourable climate conditions throughout all the year (snow in winter, rain in spring, a perfect summer) favoured a high quality. The peak temperature during veraison and few rain showers between August and September were further optimal conditions for a great vintage. 2015 quality shows its best from Serralunga, where the compact clay befitted the hot summer providing structure and pleasantness into the wines.
Fermentation and maceration for around three weeks followed by ageing in oak for 24 months.
