Whisk the eggs with four tablespoons of sugar to obtain a light and frothy cream. Slowly add the warm milk, then mix in the crumbled amaretti biscuits, cocoa and the rum, if desired, and stir. Place the remaining sugar in a saucepan with a little water and caramelise over the heat. When the sugar turns a hazelnut colour, remove it from the heat and pour it into a pre-heated rectangular pudding mould, glazing the walls and bottom. Leave to cool so that the caramel hardens, then pour the cream into the mould and bake in a bain-marie in the oven (180°C) for about half an hour. Insert a toothpick to check that the dessert is ready: it should come out dry. Allow the bunet to cool, turn it out of the mould and serve.
The Latin wording on the label, “Sator Arepo Tenet Opera Rotas”, means “the farmer directs the work of the plough”. We chose it when we bought the soil and became its owners. It is a soil on the hillside of Mango, a village in the Langhe district. We bought it in 1990. The letter G highlighted on the label emphasises the passage from father to son of knowledge of the vineyard: Giuseppe, Giacomo and then Giuseppe again.

In the Cellar
Maceration on skins for several hours in a horizontal press, followed by pressing. Vinification off skins, with prise de mousse in temperature controlled pressurised tanks, at about 4°C for 20 days. Upon completion of fermentation, stabilisation with cooling to -4°C, micro filtration and bottling ageing for several weeks.
Bright straw yellow colour, nice froth and rich perlage. An extraordinarily fresh and very variegated bouquet, with fresh fruit, orange blossom, rose and musk standing out among the many notes. A gracefully sweet flavour with the grape’s characteristic aromaticity, delicious and lingeringly persistent. Pair with fruit and fruity desserts, pastries, panettone, hazelnut tart and particular cheeses, such as Castelmagno. Very pleasant as an aperitif and as a thirst-quenching drink whenever you like.
