Mirafiore Langhe Nebbiolo ages in big and medium size oak barrels (20-140 hl) for 12 months and then in the bottle for at least further six months. It usually reaches its peak 4-6 years after the harvest, but this period can vary considerably depending on the vintage.
Vineyards facing east give to the wine an intense aromatic and spicy fragrance, taking advantage of weakness of the solar radiations linked, on the contrary, to south and west hillsides. The colour is gar- net-red with ruby shades, and its nose shows nutmeg, tobacco, dried leaves, mussel, plum and tamarind with traces of withered flowers such as rose. Its sweet and fascinating tannic taste makes the wine vel- vety and well-balanced, and lingers on the tongue with a very long balsamic aftertaste.
