For the vinification of this innovative wine of the Marchesi di Barolo winery are used Nebbiolo grapes from 100% to 85% depending on the vintage, in blend with Barbera grapes for a maximum of 15%. The vinification foresees that the grapes, harvested exclusively by hand, arrive in the cellar intact, where it is quickly destemmed and gently pressed in order to extract from the skin and from the outer area of the berry only the most noble and aromatic fractions. The fermentation, at controlled temperature, takes place in thermo conditioned tanks. Periodic soft pumping over, allow the must to appropriate all the trace elements present in the skins and gently extract the coloring material. The racking takes place at the end of fermentation. The wine is then stored in steel or vitrified cement tanks to preserve the typical fresh and fragrant aromas. In vintages in which this combination is rewarding, it is then blended with a moderate amount of Barbera wine.
