Stainless fermentation for 12-15 days using delestage and a light pumping over. Malolactic occurs in stainless followed by pouring off into 225L and 500L 2-3year old french barriques, where its aged for about a year. Further aging in bottle for 3-6 months. Full bodied, dense and smooth with balanced notes of cranberry, vanilla, and spice. Perhaps the most historic property in Asti, the estate boasts vineyards planted by Count Camilo Benzo Cavour himself. Winemaker Mario Olivero (formerly of Col d'Orcia), an Asti native, crafts expressive wines at the pinnacle of the DOC quality spectrum in Asti.
