The grapes come exclusively from the best vineyards belonging to the Marchesi of Barolo, vinified separately and blended afterwards. Deep ruby red with orange highlights. An intense bouquet with scents of withered flowers, liquorices, tobacco and spice (cinnamon). Full tasted, full bodied, with soft tannins, that recalls the olfactory sensations. A pleasant “goudron” and truffle blend perfectly with flower and spices notes. Rich, dry and deep in flavor, Barolo is an excellent accompaniment to red meats, braised and game. It is ideal accompaniment for aged cheeses, not too spicy.
The grapes are handpicked then, after being removed from the stalks, they are soft pressed. Fermentation’s temperature is controlled in thermo conditioned vats 32° degrees C. (86° F.). Maceration of 8 days with racking of the product only when all the sugar has been transformed into alcohol. The wine is aged for 2 years in traditional Slavonian oak casks, (of 30, 120, 180 hectoliters). The wine is then aged an additional 3 years in the bottle prior to been released under the name of Riserva. Conserved in a cool, dark cellar, this wine can last 25 – 30 years.
