Winemaking
grapes of Bonarda and Barbera, picked between September and October, are crushed together and undergo the fermentation process in stainless steel, temperature-controlled tanks for 12 days. Then, the must is racked-off, separating wine from the lees. After 12 months of ageing in barrels, and 3 more in the bottle, our Terre di Guarone is ready to drink.

Tasting notes
red ruby colored with dark shades. Intense on the nose, with layers of spices. Tannic and elegant in mouth, with a low acidity.
