We often call this cru “Il Ruffiano” for its rustic, raffish nature.  This is a boisterous, friendly Barolo from the heart of Serralunga d’Alba with all that zone’s lush fruit and generous body.  Here the wine thrusts us into the dense ambience of the forest: the dark berry-like fruit, the moss and underbrush, the truffles and mushrooms of the Langhe.  It’s all there with bravado and confidence.  Warm, rich, dense … one of our best friends at the table.  This is a one-hectare vineyard planted to Nebbiolo in 1955.  The exposure is southeast and the altitude is 350 meters.  Like the other “cru” Barolo, the “Ca’Mia” experiences a cuvaison of at least 3 weeks before being racked into large French “botti” for two years or more of aging.
