Made from 100% Barbera d'Alba grown in limestone and clay soils in various estate vineyards in the Trifolera zone, which is named after the prized white truffles that can be found nearby. The grapes are harvested in late September and then vinified and aged entirely in stainless steel tanks.


About the Vineyard
The first of three crests extending from Tre Stelle to Martinenga, the Trifolera vineyard mention has never been used to produce Barbaresco wine. Few are the levels of quality comparable to the top in this field, which explains why there is a higher number of Dolcetto and Barbera vineyards.

Vinification and storage exclusively in stainless steel.

Ruby-red in color when young, this wine shows lovely aromas of crushed red cherries and plum fruit. On the palate, the wine is crisp, well-rounded and flavorful.

A perfect choice for lasagna or tomato-sauced pastas, brick-fired pizzas, or slow cooked, smoked tenderloin.
