Sommelier's Description

Colour Purple with mauve hues.
Scent The assembly of three different grapes results in a very complex nose. It betters with a few years of aging in the bottle and its smell evolves.
Taste In the first years it is characterised by a sweet pepper flavor typical of the Cabernet Sauvignon, while the aging in oak barrels gives it a scent of black pepper.

The Cascina Bongiovanni vineyards are located in the heart of the Langhe, in the Barolo production area and more specifically in the municipalities of: Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga, Diano, Roddino and Monforte. These are very strong soils, capable of characterizing the wines produced on them.

The management of the vineyards is carried out mainly through manual operations, with the utmost respect for the environment and its products. From the nutrition of the vine roots to the labeling of the bottled wine, passing through the production of the sugary bunches and their consequent transformation, all phases of the process must be resolved in perfect harmony.

    Meanwhile, make the salsa verde. Place the parsley, 6 anchovies, garlic, capers, bread and vinegar in a food processor. Blitz while pouring in the oil in a thin stream, until you have a creamy, slightly oily, pesto-like sauce. Season to taste
