The grapes used in the production of this Barolo grow in the city of Monforte, in an area called Ginestra.
This area is particularly well-suited and known for producing great wines; in 1800, Fantini noted it was a land capable of producing Barolo wines of “a superior excellence.”
Harvest is done by hand by vineyard workers who are specialized in the work. After crushing, alcoholic fermentation the wine ages in oak barrels for at least 40 months before it is transferred to stainless steel tanks and then the bottle. After about seven years from the harvest date, the wine is ready to enter to market.
An elegant and very pleasing wine to the nose and to the palate, it is persistant with its smoothness and good, tight tannins. Very long finish. Such a drinkable wine that it can be paired with almost any dish.
