Diego Morra Verduno Pelaverga DOC 2017

Estate: Passed down now to the 3rd generation, the Morra family has been making wine in Piemonte since the mid 1900’s. Over the years they have increased their holdings to 30 hectares of vineyards [along with 20 hectares of olive groves] stretched across some of the best crus in Verduno: La Morra and Roddi d’Alba. The estate is farmed organically and sustainably.

Philosophy: “In search of a constant and renewed balance between man and nature, where sustainability plays a key role: so that our children, our grandchildren and those who will come after them can continue to enjoy our territory and its riches.”

Winemaking: Fermentation for 4-6 days with “temperature control (max 25°C), short but frequent remounts and racking for about 8 days, malolactic fermentation and great part of the aging process (which finishes with a period in wood) takes place in stainless steel containers during a 6 month period”.

Tasting Notes: Transparent dark ruby in colour, with aromas of raspberry, cherry, black currant, forest floor, spice and wildflowers. Silky tannins frame raspberry, red currant, blackberry, black pepper, licorice, an herbaceous layer and fresh acidity. Tangy red berries, earth, a bitter streak and trace of espresso linger between each sip.
