93 points "he Villero vineyard (Castiglione Falletto) has a moderately clayey, calcareous and compact soil. The position is South-West and the height is 340 m. N° of bottles produced approx.: 5,500 Vintage period and management: The manual harvest of the grapes takes place at the half of October. Fermentation: With controlled temperature (about 28°C) for a period of 15 – 20 days. Ageing and refining: The ageing takes place in French oak (mid size barrels of 30 Hl.), where the wine is allowed to mature for 2 years. After the ageing, the wine is put in the bottles without any filtration. The refining is carried out in a place at constant temperature and right humidity, protected from sunlight and artificial light. Tasting properties: A classic powerful and full-bodied wine from a historical vineyard of Castiglione Falletto. The colour is intense ruby red with a light presence of orange reflections. The smell is elegant, intense, pleasant , balanced and with a hint of withered roses, plums, minerals, tobacco, liquorice, smoke and leather. The taste is full bodied, balanced and velvety, with a huge structure and a very long finish." Best 2014-2020
