From Rabaja vineyard, in Barbaresco. Measuring 1.5 ha. in size, this vineyard is planted at 300 m.asl. Soil content is a rich blend of sand (30%) clay (55%) and chalk (15%), also known locally as 'Marne di Sant'Agata'. South-westerly exposure.
Hand-harvested in early October. Grapes are laid down in slatted fruit-boxes to be able to select only the best bunches. The maceration process takes place in 'tini' (open-top wooden vats), for 30 days. Grapes are then macerated for 30 days in wooden barrels. Matured in barrels of Slavonian oak for 20 months, and then in steel tanks for 1 month. Finally, aged in bottle for 26 months before release.
