A great area with eleven hillside towns that constitute the birthplace of Barolo and the wine: BAROLO, a wine that comes from far back in the past.
Notoriously defined as “the king of wines, the wine of kings”, Barolo is today among the best expression of Italian enology, a robust and complex wine, majestic expression of Nebbiolo grape.
Mdium-high hillside (300-400 m asl) with south-ouest exposure.
Miocene-Helvetian soil origin with limestone and grey marl composition.
The grapes harvest is made by hand in the first/second ten days of October.
The fermentation is traditional, carried out for an average of 10-15 days in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature with floating cap and frequent pumping over of the must to optimize the extraction of the polyphenolic substances.
At least two years in large Slavonian oak barrel followed by no less then six months in the bottle.
Brilliant ruby red colour with garnet highlights.
Full and intense bouquet, with withered flowers and dark red fruit overtones. Slighty spicy.
Well balance and harmony on the palate, full-bodied and austere with aristocratic elegance. Soft and pleasant tannins. Wine with structure capable of withstanding the test of time.
Barolo wine is the perfect pairing with the rich cuisine of Piedmont, excellent with red meat roasts, braised meats, game, truffle dishes, matured cheese.
