The wine combines complexity and great aging potential with elegance and fragrance to impart the renowned purity of Prugnolo Gentile vintages. Only about 5000 bottles are released annually.
Each Nocio couvee is aged separately in French or Slavonian oak vats raging in capacity from 5 to 10 hectoliters. Maturation takes 18 to 24 months, with the final blend made at the end of the aging process using different percentages of single couvees to define the characteristics of the vintage.
Before sale, the wine is further refined in bottles for about a year.
