We kept them “secrets” for a while, but now with Christmas approaching, we want to show you our latest wines, because we believe they could become a very special gift…
For a few years we’ve been delighted with late harvests, why not trying with Timorasso? In 2012 we left the goldest and brightest grapes over aged on the vine and, you know, with this vine variety the result can only be interesting. Young, to be tasted immediately or to forget in the cellar till a date to be set.…
During our 10 years of cellar’s activity we introduced the extraordinary Decima Vendemmia (Tenth Harvest), memorable Barbera in purity, year 2006 (still a baby), aged 5 years in oak barrels; in the same way this year, to celebrate our 15 septembers of harvest, we have “created” this wine whose name marks a further important step. This time is our selected Barbera with a 40% of a same quality Merlot. Vintage 2011.
“You pour it, look at it, smell it, taste it and you like everything. Rich, full, with a dark, inscrutable ruby red colour. It smell of cinnamon, tobacco, ripe red fruits, while is hot, alcoholic, soft, and very very rich in your mouth. It’s also well-balanced and harmonious. There’s not a perfume out of place and even alcohol can bring it out of way. The soft and sweet tannins complete that flavour frame.
That full Barbera, even if demanding, deserves our highlighting. We love it for its fresh and vinous fragrance, that it “proudly” preserve a few years after the harvest.
Very persistent on the nose and, in the mouth, is not the every day wine to drink, but it should be combined cleverly to certain dishes. It brings out its best with rich and savory recipes.
Perfect (we know, a “banal” combination, but we can’t avoid it) with the game, it goes well with red meat grilled or stewed. Try it with grilled pork ribs and sausage, or, in my opinione is the best, with marbled cheese.
From our national gorgonzola (the natural one, the “sweet” other… I can’t describe) to a Roquefort or Stilton english (high quality only).
The last merit: it keeps itself well with no problem for several years yet.”

“…A white wine like this has very few limits to match. Perfect with grilled fish, seafood, pasta with seafood, is great on pies, stuffed vegetables, omelettes with herbs and grilled white meat.”

The Tenth Harvest Read more
In wine farms time is marked by “harvests” rather than “years”. The harvest is indeed the highlight of the agricultural year, in which is expressed the valuable work done long in the vineyards. The year 2006 was my tenth harvest, a very important stage of this adventure in the world of wine, started back in 1997 almost as a joke.
