A structured still red wine, born of our Gutturnio harvest, the Morello vineyard, located in a higher position with north-south exposure. Every year we thin out the grape bunches here and harvest the grapes in an advanced state of ripeness. These are the primary reasons behind the difference between TerredellaTosa and Vignamorello: a difference in structure, maturity, depth, life span. Moreover, Vigamorello is aged in wood for a few months. All of this results in a concentrated and important wine, but with an immediate approach and the serenity emanated from our green hills reflected in the grapes.

The Grapes: 55-60% Barbera, 40-45% Bonarda.

The Vineyards: Morello vine variety; altitude 200-210 meters above sea level; clay, silt-like soil (ancient red earth), not very fertile.

Winemaking: harvest period late September/first half of October; duration of crushing on the skins 12-15 days; fermentation temperature 28-30C; the wine is aged for 6 months in a combination of 1 and 2 year old French barriques; no clarification and filtration; bottling about 10 months after the harvest.
