Monvigliero, one of the great historic crus of the region, is south-east facing and situated at 280 M elevation. The Marne di Sant’Agata soil (sand, clay, limestone) gives finesse and elegance to  the powerful wines produced here.  Verduno’s close proximity to the river greatly influences Monvigliero; providing the ideal shift between day and night temperatures.   Grapes are handpicked and carefully sorted, selecting only the best quality bunches and placing them into 20 kilo baskets.  At the winery, extended maceration of approximately 35 days takes place in stainless steel and regular punch downs. Temperature is low and controlled during fermentation and only indigenous yeasts are used. The wine is aged for 44 months in Slavonian oak and 1 months in steel tanks. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration and is followed by an additional minimum 18 months of aging before it is released.
Taste: Monvigliero is incredibly complex and expressive; evolving in the glass from first drop to the very last. This wine is bone-dry, with refreshing acid and powerful, grippy tannins. The wine hosts an array or ripe and slightly dried red fruit; cherries, cranberries, currants. The underlying orange zest and orange oil support the red fruit beautifully. Layers of dried earth, dried leather, tobacco leaf, sandalwood, camphor, crushed red rose petals, black tea leaf. A beautiful, harmonious Nebbiolo with the perfect lingering finish.
Cellaring Potential: Drink now or cellar for 15+ years
Food Matching: Hearty stews, roasted hen or braised duck
