Tasting Notes
The wine’s style is contemporary: deep ruby red, with elegant aromas recalling raspberries when it is young, while after maturing in wood its bouquet becomes more balanced and refined. Opening recommended two to six years after the vintage, though it can be kept longer. 

The Wine
Settevie - the meeting point of no fewer than seven roads - is the old name for the hamlet where the winery is located. Oft pressing, on-skins maceration for 7-9 days, and breaking up of the cap with pumping over of the must. The wine is then matured in wood: in barrique for Barbera and in slavonian oak casks holding 20/30 hl for Nebbiolo, for 12-15 months. (credits: Orlando Abrigo winery website)
