Winemaker notes

The two plots used for Barolo del Comune di La Morra are located nearby on the same hill. However, they are very different from each other. Cru Santa Maria is a plateau that drifts towards west, it’s very open and exposed, almost a donkey back shape. This allows a lot of energy to accumulate on the grapes and wines. The second plot, Cru Serra dei Turchi, is a made by a south faced amphitheater and a hump. Is this second parcel that gives the elegant side of the blend.
