La Perucca is a vineyard that lies exactly between Barolo and Barbaresco and is therefore classified as Nebbiolo d'Alba. La Perucca is mainly based on clay, limestone and sand, the planting density is 5000 vines per hectare with an average yield of 1kg/vine. The vineyard was planted in 1995 at an altitude of 280 metres and has been consistently cultivated biodynamically for a number of years, with the annual quantities of copper being continuously reduced. Fermentation starts spontaneously and takes place in steel tanks; the temperature is not controlled. For ageing, the wine is transferred to large Slavonian oak barrels, where it gradually finds its balance over three years. It is then bottled unfiltered and left to mature for a further two years.
Intense, powerful and earthy, a few berries and Mediterranean herbal notes combine with dark flavours. Tannins and acidity buffer each other and result in a densely woven, juicy and powerful texture. Flows long, persistent and elegant over the palate.
