In Castiglione Falletto, the Rocche Moriondino cru is considered the most important mention of the municipal area, the one that over the decades has always given harmonious and elegant wines, destined to maintain its features for a long time. The Rocche hills have a steeper slope facing south-east and another, gentler, facing south-west. It is precisely on this side that the Bricco Rocche and Rocche Moriondino cru are found.
The Riserva dell’Ulivo is produced only in the best vintages, when the grapes reach the perfect degree of ripeness and intensity of perfume, giving the wine its extraordinary bouquet and lasting power. It is aged for more than four years in barrel, then 12 months in bottle, only in the fifth year can the wine legally become a Riserva.
Warm and dry, but pleasantly fruity. It reminds of caramelized fruits and cherry compote. The sweet tannins and great structure, give it elegance and balance.
