A beautiful ruby red color tending to garnet red which will intensify with aging. The Barolo features a complex bouquet combining fresh fruit and spice with elegance and finesse. Tannins are strong in presence but well balanced with acid and fruit.
From the 4 hectare Bergera Pezzole vineyard in the Novell region of Barolo, the grapes are grown in calcareous marl: sedimentary rocks heavy in clay and calcium carbonate as well as sandstone. The vineyard receives Southern exposure.
Grapes are harvested by hand before being cold macerated for 24 hours. Fermentation lasts 20 days with occasional pump overs at key stages. Natural malolactic fermentation occurs within the controlled environment.
