Talk about food friendly! Cherry, plum, and floral notes define this light-medium body red with gentle tannins. A blend of Barbera, Dolcetto, and Bonarda, it brings together the classic and obscure in a refined, yet accessible wine.

TASTING NOTES 

Round on the palate which enhances drinkability. In the mouth the wine is particularly soft and dry.  Red fruits such as cherry, blackberry and strawberry are prevailing, although also a floral note such as rose and violet is detectable.

THE STORY TO KNOW

They are a family winery in their fourth generation who has always and exclusively produced and sold wines. The patriarch Carlin, son of our great-grandfather Paolo, was an indefatigable worker, bent from the hard work carried out in the vineyards for many years. However he was always joyful, with his fist clenched as a sign of determination and always striding forward. He worked for the soil, the love for the family, a life full of sacrifices, his trousers patched, and an open heart. They believe that the best ingredient of a wine is the honesty of the producer, and have continued to carry the tradition that's been passed down for generations.
