Enticing scents of underbrush, tilled earth, wild rose and woodland berry align with balsamic notes of cool menthol. The linear, elegant palate offers red cherry, raspberry, white pepper and tobacco alongside taut, refined tannins. It's all about focus and finesse.

The Adriano Marco e Vittorio farm is located in the heart of the Langhe, at Frazione San Rocco Seno d'Elvio, over the beautiful Alba, producing wines with the unique characteristics of the territory. It is a family run company, who has been producing wine from its own grapes for generations. At the beginning of the 20th century, Giuseppe, the grandfather, who was share-farmer, started his activity of growing grapes. Later on, he purchased a small farm and together with his son Aldo, expanded the family property planting new vines. The grandsons, Marco e Vittorio, continued this expansion, introducing big changes as the wine-making and the bottling of their own production. The farm has currently an extension of 23 hectares of vineyards.

After a careful selection, the grapes are crushed before undergoing the traditional-style fermentation on the skins in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 28 °C. After about 10 days the wine is separated from the skins and seeds, and several rackings are performed over the following months to obtain a clear, clean product.
After some months in stainless steel tanks, the wine is maturated for a year in medium –sized oak casks from 35 to 50 hl.
Ageing in bottle: More than one year.
