Those represent great values which I think still taste of the Piedmont region with a taste of Nebbiolo.
(From 2009 Vintage) The estate specialty is Sfursat ("strained" or "forced"); a wine made from grapes harvested by trained pickers and dried for 100 days in the cool, dry, alpine air. This winemaking style combines the opulence of Amarone with the elegant complexity of Barolo.
