This wine results from the assembly of five Nebbiolo vineyards of La Morra. The goal is to make an exquisite wine that represents the best of the La Morra vineyards. The fruit for the 2019 release again hails primarily from the younger vines off of the ‘Ascheri’ block (planted in 1980), with a bit of the oldest vines, on a southwest-facing slope at 1,100 feet in elevation. The other two vineyards are the ‘Motturone’ and ‘Paradisio’ vineyards, of which the former is located southwest of Ascheri at 900 feet in elevation on a west-facing slope that was initially planted in 1980 along with more recent vines in 2002. 

The grapes were hand-harvested in late October with the bunches being destemmed and fermented without any additions in stainless steel vats. Frequent pigeage was employed to gain optimum extraction and the lots spent between 45 and 60 days on skins after which everything was pressed to a combination of used French oak barrique and Slavonian botti. After 24 months of age with only a single racking during the two years in wood, the wine was racked to tank, blended, and bottled without fining or filtration.

Truly textbook La Morra in every way. Immeasurably pleasant and aromatic, it offers scents of flowers and light, delicate spices. The bouquet is agreeably rounded, balanced between elegance and rowdy broodiness.

Cranberry, sour red fruits, dried herbs, roasted earth, and dried flowers open this very pretty wine. The palate shows more floral and earth notes at first, then moves into a deep core of fresh cherry. Fine tannins go nicely with well-balanced acidity. Drink now–2035.

A dense, muscular red marked by cherry, plum, eucalyptus and earth flavors. Packs generous fruit to match the grainy tannins, while lively acidity drives the long finish. Best from 2027 through 2045. 1,400 cases made, 800 cases imported.

La Morra. Just mid-ruby. Sweet, almost exotically perfumed raspberry fruit with a hint of minty oak. The minty oak is like a touch of perfume to the juicy raspberry fruit on the palate. Elegant and concentrated at the same time with attractive, chewy tannins on the finish.
