Reviews and Ratings

Barbera grapes used for producing this wine are cultivated in Cocconato, where the maximum production is 6.000 kg per hectare.
After a careful selection of the grapes, manually harvested, it starts the vinification process: a long maceration at controlled temperature (24 °C) and a refining period of twelve-fourteen months first in barrique and then in bottle.
This wine has a deeply ruby red colour.
Its perfume is full with extremely well- balanced aromas of red berries, vanilla and chocolate.
Elegant texture with a pleasant vinous character. Round and continuous with scents of blackberries and once again vanilla.
It is a fascinating wine with an excellent structure and a richness of aromas and flavours that make it suitable for different courses and foods.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
