Tasting Note: 

"From one of the great Barbaresco producers comes this Merlot that’s seen plenty of barrel and bottle ageing. From 2012, it has mature aromas of earth, game, dried fruits, dried herbs, and leather, but it’s still extremely fresh with aromas of red plum and licorice, as well as firm tannins and high acidity on the palate. A quietly sophisticated wine that at this quality and at this age should cost much more." - BRW 

About the Wine: 

The Merlot grapes come from di Grésy's Monte Colombo vineyards in the comune of Cassine, in the Asti zone. These were planted to use in a blended cuvée with Barbera, but Alberto was so impressed with the quality that he decided instead to produce this single varietal wine. Traditional vinification and maceration (14 day maceration) with regular pumpings over. Malolactic fermentation in tank. 12 months in used French barriques (Allier) followed by 24 months in Slavonian oak casks.
