About this wine
Vineyard: La Morra and Monforte, Piedmont, Italy.
Winemaking: The Nebbiolo grapes are harvested by hand in the second half of October. The wine then undergoes traditional fermentation and maceration for 14 to 16 days, with frequent punching down and pumping over. After 30 months of ageing in French oak barrels, it is matured in bottle for at least 6 months.
Ageing: The wine will be at its best from 4 to 12 years after harvest, and this vintage will age beautifully beyond that.
Grape variety: 100% Nebbiolo
Deep garnet colour. Complex, well-integrated aromas of blackberry, dried raspberry, dried red cherry, cloves and cinnamon, underpinned by hints of leather, chocolate and dried wild rose petals. On the palate, this Barolo is dry and full-bodied, and with soft, rich tannins. It still has a high level of juicy acidity. It’s full of flavours of black and red fruits such as dried red and black berries, along with savoury spicy notes of cinnamon, chocolate and leather. It will continue to develop and open up in the bottle for a long time. Drink now or hold for another 10-15 years.
