This Barolo, the 'King of Wines, is made from Nebbiolo in Piedmont; it's powerful, concentrated, with classic liquorice, red fruit and perfumed roses. A classic Barolo with aromas of tar and roses convert seamlessly into a powerful, concentrated mouthful.
Food Matching: Ideal with rich red meats and with medium or mature cheeses it is perfect as an after dinner wine.
Vineyard: Growing locations: Eleven villages south of Alba. Vineyard features: Located mid- and high-hillside (300-400 m a.s.l) with various exposures (except for the north), they are planted on soil of Miocene-Helvetian and Tortonian origin, which is characteristically packed with limestone and marl.
Vinification: Wine-making process: the fermentation is traditional, carried out for an average of 8-10 days in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (30-31°C) with a floating cap and frequent pumping over of the must. The must is then left on the skins for several days to optimise the extraction of the polyphenolic substances and to help the malolactic fermentation get underway. Ageing: at least two years in large casks made of oak (from Slovenia and mid-France), followed by no less then twelve months in the bottle.
