Our “Notturno”stems from the desire to embrace a new local DOC and be interpreter of another important grape which contributes of creating a particular identity of our wine region.
This wine is the result of a niche production, obtained from the highest hillside of Monferrato, nestled in our territory. The aging in oak wood gives an important structure, from the expressive and aromatic point of view, this is a wine which conveys towards the fruity notes, a ripen fruit with smoky flavours coming through. The palate is full and eveloping, as the dreamlike and smooth melody to which it is inspired.
