In the Neive village, Serraboella is the only hill that combines Serravalliano and Tortoniano soils. Is a rare combination of soil exalted by the South-West exposure. The sinergy between soil and climate in this unique plot is straight-forward, aging potential is combined with the an immediate expressivity.
Soft, open-knit and gracious. Succulent red cherry, mint, white pepper and chalk make a positive first impression. Hints of rose petal, mint and cinnamon blend into the creamy finish.
