Winemaking: the grapes are selected from the single vineyard Lazzarito in Serralunga, which has 4,500 plants by hectare that are 38 years old and low yields of 20 hl/ha (1.1 ton/acre). The grapes are harvested and gently pressed, their juice ferments for 21 days in stainless steel tanks at 30-32° C (86-90° F). Lazzarito vineyard is one of the most famous “crus” of Serralunga. It’s our most modern interpretation of Barolo.
