VARIETY: 100% Pinot Noir, partly clonal selection and partly massal selection.
VINEYARD AND TERROIR: From the highest part of the Bricco delle Viole, also called Bricco di Vergne, between Barolo and La Morra. Here, the eye oversees the Alta Langa to the East and Monviso on the West.

A mild winter and an early spring, with early vegetative growth. The summer was characterized by good water retention in the soils and cool breezy nights. Very late harvest.
TASTING NOTES: With an intense and bright color, the Pinot Nero 2014 is fresher than the previous vintage. The rich structure is accompanied by great delicacy and aromatic finesse, playing with the dominant note of marasc
