Fantini of 1880 and in the Atlas of the Grandi Vigne di Langa published by Arcigola Slow Food, among the most qualified positions.

Intense garnet red, ample and elegant delicately spiced bouquet, with hints of flowers, small red fruits and goudron. On the palate opulent structure supported by soft tannins, coated with ripe fruit and licorice. A “majestic” traditional Nebbiolo with the power, harmony and complexity of a great orchestra! Extraordinary aging capacity. Perfect pairing with red meat and furred game dishes, but also with very rich fish dishes, such as baked turbot, rather than for a dinner based on refined cheeses.
