Here are two important notes regarding this latest release: 1) For the first time, we have matured Langhe Nebbiolo 2013 in 1000 litres Slavonian oak barrels (previously we always matured in used 225 litre barrels made from French oak). This will contribute, we believe, to greater elegance and finesse; 2) For Barolo 2011, after its usual 24 month maturation in large 2500 litre botte made from Slavonian oak, there has been a further passage of 12 months in vasche di cimento cement vats (previously this final period of maturation took place in stainless steel). We believe that this contributes to an improvement in harmony and balance, intensifying more immediately both aroma and character.
