    A blend of two declassified Nebbiolo da Barolo vineyards: Bussia Brovi in Monforte d’Alba & Roncaglie in La Morra (70/30), harvested on 5 Oct, 50% destalked, 50% whole berries, vinified separately, spontaneous ferment in cement & stainless-steel vats for 12 days, with gentle pumping over, before being transferred to wooden tini of 25HL for 8 months to give a 13.8%, 5.40TA, & 3.53pH wine of only 3000 bottles! The (relatively intense) colour & texture (spessura) stems from the Bussia fruit, while La Morra’s Roncaglie gives us the fine nose, aromatics, a weave of little red berries, of cold tea & morning light! It’s a very complementary blend, from La Morra’s younger, clay soils combining with Monforte’s poor marne & sandstone slopes. When first tasted in Nov’19, there was a distinct raspberry essence aromas, of white pepper, sapid & well-turned out. More recently, it’s unsurprisingly grown in stature, filling out, with the mouthfeel – la stoffa – coming from Monforte & a raciness linear character from La Morra. Complete, enveloping, fruttato, minerally…molto buono! - David Berry Green
