A soft-spoken family man rarely seen outside of his vineyards or cellar, Silvio Giamello is a maestro of textbook Barbaresco: high-toned, floral, and wonderfully refined.

|Vineyard:||41 - 48 years, 2 ha total|
|Soil:||Clay with Lime-rich Marl|
|Aging:||Aged in Slavonian oak botti (barrels) of 20-30 hectoliters for 2-3 years|
