100% Nebbiolo from three different vineyards located at 400 to 440m above sea level in the Commune of Barolo, Piemonte.
Grapes were hand-picked and hand-sorted. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts and maceration lasted 20 days at temperatures not exceeding 32ºC with traditional punch downs. Malolactic fermentation followed for the first year in Slovenian oak casks. The wine remained in oak for a total of 42 months before bottling.
Aromas of red fruits and plums combine with floral notes, pine needles and brushwood. 'Le Albe' is a harmony of sophisticated and delicate flavours supported by ripe tannins and an elegant acidity.
