This Langhe Nebbiolo is made with grapes from a beautiful south-facing vineyard in Santo Stefano Belbo.
In the summer, the vineyard is filled with daisies and admiring them is quite a sight. Hence the name of this wine “Le Margherite” (daisies).
It is rather deep ruby red with garnet hues.
The aromas are intense and fruity, conferred by the full ripeness of the grapes.
It is velvety, full-bodied. To appreciate all its characteristics, oxygenate it in a ballon chalice.
Try it with red meats; it is especially good with stews and braised meats.

Method: the harvest is done manually in boxes and after a subsequent phase of crushing-destemming, the starting base is obtained: the must. After storage in vertical steel winemakers (Fermentini) alcoholic fermentation begins with the addition of selected yeasts. During this phase, pump-over (an operation that consists of wetting the floating skins on the fermenting must with the same must taken from the bottom of the tank by means of a special pump) and delestage (decanting a part of the fermenting must and putting it back into the tank from the top, wetting the floating skins) are very important. When fermentation is complete, separation of the skins, which will be destined for the distillery, takes place, while the must begins malolactic fermentation at 20°C. At the end of this fermentation, the second racking takes place. The wine remains stored in steel tanks until March. It is then racked into used barrels and aged for 4 months.
