VITICULTURE / VINIFICATION

• Vines are sustainably farmed, the equivalent of lutte raisonnée in France.

• Only indigenous yeasts are used

• Almost all barrels used (barriques, tonneaux, and botti) are at least 5th passage; new barrels are introduced occasionally as needed

• The Lazzairasco, Santa Caterina, and l’Pari vineyards are all monopolies


Langhe Nebbiolo “Camilu”:

• Maceration in cement vats lasts 20-25 days; pumping over 3-4 times daily
• Six or seven months in 500-L tonneaux
• Vines are located in the Serralunga within the Barolo DOCG

Langhe Rosso “Paesan”:

• Nebbiolo and Barbera vinified and matured separately

• Maceration in cement vats lasts 20-25 days; pumping over 3-4 times daily

• Nebbiolo: 1 year in tonneaux

Dolcetto, Barbera:

• Maceration in cement vats lasts 7-12 days; pumping over 3-4 times daily
