Barolo docg Brunate

The original name of this vineyard was Brinate. The vineyard is in the township of La Morra and covers a total surface area of 25 hectares (62 acres) with a sun exposure facing south. A reduced amount of sand (25%), and a higher loam (45%) and clay (30%) content impart scents of violet and small red fruit, balsamic tastes, and pleasant spice notes of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg to this special Barolo.

When the wine ages, it takes on notes of tobacco, rose, liquorish, and – in the best of vintages – even truffle. Its finesse and elegance are due to its alkalinity and calcium content.
