The same grape variety used to make the great Barolo wines just to the south. This is an excellent example of the earlier maturing style of wine. Typically pale colour with a nose of rose petals and violets. Soft but intense on the palate with a touch of tar and good length.

£13.80 Per Bottle
The very first family from whom Dylan imported wine. The winery is in Cisterna d’Asti, a small village that is 375 metres above sea level, in the province of Asti on the border of the province of Cuneo. The vineyards are pruned the ‘Guyot’ way and cover a surface of about 9 hectares, all grown on ideal steep hills with traditional varieties: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Arneis and the indigenous grape Croatina. The vineyards’ soil is mostly made up of sandstone, sedimentary rocks of marine origin mixed with limestone, clay and sand, which results in a soft permeable soil. The latest technical developments are used in the vineyards respecting the traditional manner, using methods that have a minimal impact on the environment.
