The grapes for this wine come from Luca's younger vines (25 years old and younger ) in Pira in Castiglione Falletto (Barolo) and in Paje in Barbaresco. The grapes are hand-picked; soft pressing with destemming. Temperature-controlled fermentation in wood casks. Maceration for 30-50 days. Aging: 3-4 years in medium-sized French and Slavonian oak casks, then at least six months in the bottle. While this wine is made from Luca's "younger vines," most producers would use this fruit for their Barbaresco or Barolo. The wine could easily be mistaken for either in a blind tasting.
