Lano's most exciting wine; one of great class and intensity. All the elements that make Nebbiolo such a compelling and intellectual varietal are on full display. A nose that shimmers with hints of fruit, rose, licorice and earth. A similarity to the Langhe Nebbiolo can be felt, but this wine is deeper, longer, more aromatic, and more regal.

The cool red fruit and licorice aspects speak to a vineyard site tending mostly clay, as Rocche Massalupo does. With age, youthful exuberance and fruit gives way to site specific nuance and elegance. The site also tends to the Barolo side of the Barbaresco zone, farther away from the Tanaro river; we believe contributing to a profile in youth that can be evocative, in some ways, of Barolo. However, with age, we routinely find wild strawberry fruit, that for us firmly points back to Barbaresco.
