NOTES The Tartufaia is a Cru of Serradenari in La Morra, one of the highest hills in the territory of the appellation, with vineyards between 420 and 550 meters; it represents an area with a particularly cool and breezy microclimate, which is reflected in the elegant profile of the wines. Climbing towards the top of the hill, the soils become increasingly rich in sandy veins and limestone marl, which contribute to giving Barolo an extreme expressive refinement. The high quality grapes, a work in the cellar that is very respectful of the raw material and aimed at enhancing the typical characteristics of the terroir, allow the creation of a Barolo faithful to the land of origin.
AGING 24 months in 25hl Slavonian oak barrels.
