REGION: Barolo DOCG– Piemonte
GRAPES: 100% Nebbiolo
SOIL TYPE: Some grapes comes from Castiglione Faletto. The soil there is made of clayey marls with a high percentage of sand. The remaining grapes comes from La Morra and the soil composition is white, clay, calcareous.
WINEMAKING: Selection in the vineyard and selection during light crushing to remove the berries that are not perfectly healthy and ripe. Fermentation at 28°C for 30 days. Malolactic fermentation in large barrels of 30 Hl (50%) and barrique (50%). Batonnage on ne lees for 8 months. Bottling under nitrogen coverage and storage in a controlled temperature environment.
TASTING NOTES: Perfumed, in a delicate, haunting way. Then deeply earthy: mushrooms, sous bois, tart cherry and truffle. Flavours entwined with tannins that feel gossamer fine but there are so many of them that they cling to the fruit like a film of fine chalk dust. Tamarind on the finish. Determined but elegant. A slender, long-necked wine with a set jaw.
FOOD PAIRINGS: Ideal to combine with elaborate and loaded dishes like all truffle recipes, meat dishes, first courses based on porcini mushrooms, game, mature cheeses and it is also perfect in combination with dry pastries or chocolate.
