This wine comes from a single vineyard ‘Roccabella’, just outside the Barolo commune. It has been affectionately referred to as “Baby Barolo” as it has all the aromatics, elegance, and purity of its more famous big brother, but is slightly less serious, and more approachable in its youth.

Cinzia and her husband Eugenio inherited her father’s estate in 1996. Their first vintage was minuscule – only 225 litres were produced – though it encouraged them to plant more vineyards and slowly grow to today’s humble 5.5 hectares. They have worked biodynamically since the start, also having livestock and other crops to look after. In the winery they only use indigenous yeasts, used oak barrels and they don’t fin or filter the wines. As a result, the wines are extremely expressive and approachable with carefully managed tannins, emphasizing the raw beauty of the grapes.
