Description

Details

Being located on the southern fringe of the Barolo zone the Principiano estate benefits from the biodiversity of the Alta Langhe; the wilderness that lies beyond the dense planting of Nebbiolo vineyards. This helps in maintaining a biodiverse balance in the vineyard.

In 2003 Ferdinando Principiano made the decision to move away from the world of consultants and their prescriptions, both in the vineyard and cantina and since then he’s been rewarded by the purity and drinkability of his wines.

Vineyards
Nebbiolo grapes ripen on 3.5 hectares of land from young vines planted in the valley of Boscareto in Serralunga d'Alba. The focus on the balance of the plant and achieving the ideal ripeness of the grapes allow Ferdinando to harvest in early October.

Vinification
The crushed grapes ferment naturally with their yeasts and without added sulphur for about a month and the ageing takes place for 24 months in 20 and 40 hectolitres barrels.

Tasting Notes
