2015 Harvest Report
The excellent quality of the tannins will certainly ensure elegant, long-lasting wines with good structure, while the acidity is just perfect for Nebbiolo-based wines. The vintage shows great promise.
The assembling of the blend or the cuvee - already utilized by local winemakers from the beginning of the 20th century - is the method we follow. It ensures wines of outstanding finesse and great balance. This Barolo is made accordingly to the Langhe tradition, with a fermentation lasting approximately 20-25 days at 30 degrees C. Malolactic fermentation folllows in steel, and then the wine matures for 24 months in Slavonian oak casks (5,000 litres). Another year in the bottle helps to further develop the balance of this Barolo.
Colour: Ruby red shading to garnet
Bouquet: Rich and generous, with complex scents of spices, licorice, cherries and dried roses.
Palate: Dry, well balanced and full-bodied with well-integrated tannins. Exhibiting a note of plum.
Pairings: Traditionally paired with rich red meats (roasted or braised) and aged cheeses. Even though Nebbiolo is traditionally paired with Italian foods, it has been well-received alongside American cuising (beef tenderloin, ribeye steak, BBQ). For something different, try moderately spiced Asian cuisine.
