The Schiavenza company acts in the territory of Serralunga d'Alba since 1956.

Prune and plum dominate the nose with soft spice notes that show light mint and a little cinnamon extract on the nose, along with hints of camphor and fruitcake. Very soft and expansive on entry with a rich, medium-bodied feel. This is perhaps a touch monotone with soft tannins, though it is snappy and spicy on the finish with a cinnamon pepperiness. This shows some early complexity with a little oxidative orange note on the back end of the mid-palate and tannins that seem a touch dry on the finish, but it all comes together quite nicely. 90pts
