Winemaking: The grapes are selected from the single vineyard Lazzarito in Serralunga, which has 4,300 plants by hectare that are 39 years old and low yields of 25 hl/ha (1.1 ton/acre). The grapes are harvested and gently pressed, their juice ferments for 11 days in stainless steel tanks at 30° C (86°F). Lazzarito vineyard is one of the most famous “crus” of Serralunga. It’s our most modern interpretation of Barolo.
