Barolo DOCG Riserva

Vineyard

Variety: Nebbiolo subvarieties Lampia and Michet
Origin of grapes: Helvetian-epoch zone, with compact, sand-rich and clay soil; Tortonian-epoch zone featuring a mixture of limestone, silt and fine sand.

Vinification

Separate crushing and destemming of each single vineyard; maceration with skins for 12-15 days at maximum temperature of 29-31°C. Racking and return are followed by 18 months of élevage in oak barrels. After this phase, 3000 litres of wine from selected vineyards are blended; élevage is then extended an additional 12-18 months in 30 hL barrels.
After bottling, the wine is stored horizontally for at least six months prior to packaging and shipping.

Organoleptic Characteristics

Very intense ruby red colour; nose continues fresh with notes of red fruit in a delicate cloud of vanilla.
Dry, round and richly full-bodied, with complex polyphenols allowing for lengthy ageing.

Storage

Horizontal storage of bottles in a cool, dry place is recommended.

In excellent years, those suited to lengthy ageing, we set aside a selection from our best vineyards to make BAROLO RISERVA.
