Historic wine of the winery coming from the carefully selected blend of the Monfalletto Estate vineyards in the town of La Morra. Age of vines are between 15 to 50 years, all with South/East and South/West exposures giving the perfect grapes and harmonious ripeness. The clayey and calcareous soils add elegance and complexity. Magnesium oxide and manganese in the soil facilitate the maturation of soft and dense tannins. Altitude between 250 and 300 meters above sea level.

All the various lots undergo a period of aging in different types of French and Slovenian wood for a period between 18 to 24 months. Final assemblage of the chosen lots, bottled and released on the market after one year.

FOOD COMBINATION:

An aristocratic wine that finds its match with game, jugged hare, braised beef, chamois, saddle of venison, wild boar, deer and pigeon. Superb with dishes garnished with white Alba truffle: cardoon flan with fondue and duck ravioli. Wine of longevity that evolves slowly and steadily in the bottle. Great expressions even after several decades. Timeless.
