Grape Variety: Nebbiolo


Alcohol: 14% Vol


Vinification: The grapes are collected by hand and taken to the cellar where they are destemmed and softly pressed to extracl only the most noble and aromatic parts from the skins and the outer portion of the grape. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in thermo-conditioned tanks. Maceration lasts for 8 days. During this time, the wine is regularly recycled from the bottom to the top, so that the must takes on all the trace elements present in the skins and delicately extracts the color. The first racking is done when the natural sugars of the grapes are totally converted to alcohol. The wine is racked in cement tanks and then malolactic fermentation starts spontaneously and completes rapidly. Initially the wine ages in small oak barrels, then it is blended in the traditional large Slavonian oak barrels, which contribute to making this wine harmonious and balanced and to enhancing the bouquet's elegance. The wine completes its ageing in the bottle for some months before going onto the market. Barolo reaches maturity 4 years after being harvested and the peak condition is between 4 and 20 years


Colour: Garnet red with ruby reflections


Bouquet: The aroma is intense and persistent with distinct traces of spices, cinnamon, absinthe, tobacco and wild rose.


Taste: The taste is full and elegant, with soft tannins. The spicy and the woody aromas blend perfectly. From the solid structure, many mineral nutrients can be sensed too, and thus a vigorous but balanced personality is completely shown.
