Notes from the producer:

"Fondetta", which is part of the estate's Nervo Cru vineyard in the village of Treiso. The vines grow on the southern side of the hill, on well-drained soils, at an altitude of 310-370 meters above sea level. The steep slopes make working conditions harder but at the same time improve the drainage system and the solar exposition. The perfect microclimatic conditions and the poor soil (white marl clayey-calcareous) give the wine density and exemplary finesse. The taste is earthy and mineral, notes of raspberry, cinnamon and fresh mint. The finish is characterized by linear and thick tannins."
