Winery Note:


This blend is a matching of elegance and power. Elegance derived from Barolo part with the vines rooted in the famous Tortonian, calcareous marl and a South-Easterly aspect, and the power from that of the older, iron rich Helvetian soils of Monforte with a South-Westerly aspect. The vines are an average age of 40 years and are massal selected. Aged for three and a half years in 300L barriques.

Details

I have a heavy addiction to Nebbiolo, and I live in Barbaresco where I’m completely surrounded by it. I'm also Australian by birth and that means I'm a little bit of a stranger amongst the hills of the Langhe, but I do feel like it's home now. My addiction has taken me on a ride that I would never have dreamed of. I started making wine from the day I left school, and even though I didn't inherit a winery or watch my Dad work the vines, it's been an uncontrollable passion for me since day one. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I found Nebbiolo back in 2006... 10 years later, I'm living amongst the vines in Italy, making wine in the old train station of Barbaresco, and enjoying the positive feedback from my customers that keeps me striving to aim higher. The production has somewhat diverted from only Nebbiolo, and what started with just Barolo and Barbaresco has now grown into 7 wines that are produced from 12 different vineyard sites. I still make one wine in Australia too, which is a unique expression of Australian Nebbiolo. My production is small, no more than 12000 bottles that are mostly allocated which is extremely humbling. Thanks for taking an interest in what I do. - Winery Note
