REGION: Barbaresco DOCG– Piemonte
GRAPES: 100% Nebbiolo
SOIL TYPE: White calcareous clay soils. The light color of the soil is due to the high amount of calcium carbonate. Clay, present in greater quantities than silt and sand, associated with a high quantity of calcium carbonate, allows the Nebbiolo to grow and complete its vegetative cycle without water stress and with limited vegetative vigor. This type of soil gives the wine longevity, freshness, elegance and a great character.
WINEMAKING: Very delicate destemming and crushing to preserve the integrity of the grapes followed by a long maceration in contact with the skins at 28°-30°C for 25 days. Fermentation in barrels of 30 HL (70%) and in barriques (30%). Batonnage for 8 months and ageing in wood.
TASTING NOTES: Underbrush, red berry and leather aromas unfold in the glass. The taut palate shows cranberry, clove, star anise and a crushed sage note alongside firm tannins that grip the finish.
FOOD PAIRINGS: Mainly roast, but also goes well with game, poultry, braised meats and aged or spicy cheeses. Barbaresco goes well with rich and powerful first courses, based on white truffle and porcini mushrooms.
