Being located on the southern fringe of the Barolo zone, the Principiano estate benefits from the biodiversity of the Alta Langhe: the wilderness that lies beyond the dense planting of Nebbiolo vineyards. This helps in maintaining a biodiverse balance in the vineyard. In 2003 he made the decision to move away from the world of consultants and their prescriptions, both in the vineyard and cantina, and since then he’s been rewarded by the purity and drinkability of his wines.
At 350 metres of altitude, from 40 years vines with south south/east exposure
Alcoholic fermentation in steel with indigenous yeasts. Aged 10 months in steel vats.
Spicy and slightly floral nose, with raspberries and a distinct freshness. On the palate there is loads of crunchy fruit, as well as firm tannins and a crisp acidity that are at the forefront, but that are well integrated into the structure of this wine.
