    Harvest: A rainy winter with above average temperatures caused an early sprouting, that started in March. A regular beginning of the spring has been interrupted by a rainy weather in April. From May till September the weather got well again, but from the middle of September the weather conditions changed suddenly with a drop of temperatures and frequent precipitations caused the slowing down of tardive grape varieties maturation. Fortunately the grape acidity has been maintained at good level. Winemaking: regular fermentation, but no submerged cap maceration; racking off at the beginning of November. Ageing: a year and a half in stainless steel tanks, two years in concrete vats and other two years in big Slavonian oak barrels. Bottling: end of April 2006.

    TASTING NOTES

    >TASTING<

    PIEDMONT

    The 2001 Riserva has rich fruit flavors of blackberry and plum, with lifting violet petal, and aged flavors of tar and cigar. The age of the wine has softened tannins beautifully, leading to a long and satisfying finish.
