100% Nebbiolo. Valferana sits towards the middle of the commune, marginally lower in altitude (320 metres) than Molsino and slightly more protected. This cru also faces more south/south-east, so these combined attributes make this cru not as structured and as taut as Molsino. Fermentation and maceration are the same as the Molsino cru, with oak maturation usually 4-6 months less than Molsino. Almost Burgundian in shape, with wonderful, persistent tannins, ironstone minerality, dried herbs, anise and bright, vivid fruits.
