Brother and sister Enrico, an oenology graduate from Turin University, and Jole Dellapiana are now running their family's estate just outside Treiso, just along the road from Enrico Nada and Grasso Fratelli. Their father, Ernesto, established the estate in 1974 after he made a decision to quit his paper-making business to immerse himself in the land of the Langhe. There are now 90 acres, making it one of the largest wine estates in the whole of the Barbaresco region.
Aromas of licorice, camphor and pressed rose come to the forefront on this bold red along with whiffs of new leather. On the full-bodied palate, firm, refined tannins accompany red cherry, star anise, white pepper and the warmth of alcohol. Fresh acidity keeps it energized. Drink 2028–2033.
