Another wine which tends to “Barbarescheggiare”.
It shares the San Stunet vineyard with our Barbaresco.
It spends up to two years in small wooden barrels, some new and some not.
It is called Desmentià (which is the Piedmontese word for “Forgotten”) because we forgot about it by accident and left it to age in wood for longer than planned.
Dry, well-structured and smooth, harmonious and persistent with scents of red fruit.
