La Gemella Rosata
A stylistic exercise to explore the versatility of Nebbiolo and its potential. It is born in calcareous-clayey soils where the altitude in which vineyards are placed guarantees a fresh and sweet acidity. The early harvest preserves a primary fruit, rose petal and minerality. The first experiments dated 2017 immediately surprised with an excellent result. Thanks to winery investments, 2018 marks the first bottle for the market and, for the first time in the history of the winery, the use of the stelvin cap. New horizons fueled by an insatiable curiosity.
