BAROLO

True to our style, we pay close attention to the vineyard management: non-aggressive thinning; accurate harvest of grapes done by hand, and vinification with a long maceration of up to thirty days.

Denomination: DOCG (Checked and Guaranteed Origin Name)

Varietal: 100% Nebbiolo

Colour: an intense garnet red, elegantly transparent.

Aroma: The bouquet is full, complex and enveloping, with a flowery scent of dried roses and violets; fruity, of raspberries and wild strawberries, for the younger wines; of jam, marmalade and nutmeg, that with the passing of time develops hints of black pepper, licorice, tobacco, leather and smoke.

Flavour: distinctly tannic when young, with a rich body; its taste is dry, full, robust but velvety, very harmonious and enveloping.

Vinification and ageing: Our Barolo is a robust and tannic wine, but it is also soft and elegant. By a long maceration on the skins after fermentation, the wine agesfor nearly 3 years in Slavonian oak barrels with a capacity of 30 to 100 hl, in order to enhance its attributes. Then the wine is placed into bottles, where it undergoes an additional ageing process of several months.

Preferable with: red meats, roasted meat, game meat, medium or hard ripening cheeses.

Serving temperature: to enjoy the particularities of the wine, we recommend serving it at a temperature of 16/18 ºC in large wine goblets.

It is a wine of long ageing that grows in emotions as time goes by.
