The purest expression of our vineyard. Result of the “selection massale” praticed by Secondo in 1953.
These plants are able as such to express in a deeper and complex way the unique terroir that characterize our hill, that has been guarded here.
Being a “Riserva” it is produced only when it is able to express something outstanding. Enabling us to seize between glass and cork the expression of one year of hard work, winds, rain and sun.
Laced with rose petals, spices, mint, sweet red berries. The balance of fruit, acidity and tannin is simply magnificent. At the same time, the power and breadth of Serraboella comes through in spades.
