From the vineyards of Ormeggio & Castagnola in Lessona and Cova vineyard in Castello. Soils are mostly from ancient marine deposits, yellow sands with minerals. Some volcanic materials are found from the erosion of the Alps and glacial deposits. 100% Nebbiolo harvested October 20th. Lessona rarely suffers from heat stress often seen in the Langhe, afternoon alpine showers keep vineyards cool and soils humid. Destemmed by hand, fermented in open top wood fermenters on the skins for 28 days, aged 13 months sur lie then moved to 15 Hl cask for another 30 months. Production: 2,000 bottles.
