The Sito Moresco has a ruby red colour with fine garnet reflections. It unites the complexity and shelf life of Nebbiolo with the finesse and smoothness of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Fine fragrance of red berries, elegant style with power and well-integrated tannin. Perfect harmony and great value for money.
Each of the three grape varieties is worked individually and fermented in steel tanks at 25 to 27 °C for 2 weeks. The wine is then aged for 12 months in barriques followed by 6 months in bottles.
Angelo Gaja was born in Alba in 1940 and today runs the family business in the fourth generation. He is one of the most important wine producers worldwide and is known for his elegant and opulent wines. He was a pioneer in Piedmont for the vinification of single vineyard sites and the subsequent ageing of the wines in barriques. Already more than 20 times he succeeded in achieving the famous "tre bicchieri" awards of Gambero Rosso.
His pomace is exclusively processed by the local Distilleria del Barbaresco into fine grappa.
