6 months in old French oak barrels
Limited Production to 1748 bottles and 40 magnums. Numbered bottles
San Defendente, a small hamlet found in the hills surrounding Canale in the Piedmont region, has always been “home” to the Deltetto family. The Reserve wine emerges from this historic vineyard which is today part of the Roero DOCG wine region. An altitude of over 300 metres, combined with an excellent exposure, allows to harvest grapes when they are perfectly ripe. This produces a complex wine which still has the noteworthy acidity essential for extensive ageing.
An intense straw yellow colour with a fine, intriguing and heterogeneous nose; flowers and ripe fruits accompany hydrocarbon notes. In the mouth its freshness and flavour is contrasted by softness and structure. Pair this wine with starters, first courses, blue fish and shellfish.
