Barolo

Barolo is the most illustrious and austere son of the great vine species: Nebbiolo.

Cultivating the Nebbiolo vine species in hilly regions was mentioned even back in 1512 in the “Loci Murre” Statutes. It can be a rather unpredictable vine species, which only expresses its best in more congenial environments.
The variableness of expression is also reflected in its name: there are those who say Nebbiolo takes its name from the Italian word nebbia meaning mist/fog, which accompanies the late ripening, there are those who say it comes from the misty layer of bloom that covers the grapes and there are those who define it as a metamorphosis of the adjective “noble”.

For the Nebbiolo, perhaps more than for any other vine species, the grandness of this wine depends on the location of the vineyard in which it is cultivated. Nebbiolo only becomes Barolo after maturing in wooden casks for two years and one year in the bottle.

Vine species: Nebbiolo.
Colour: from ruby red, it changes, with age, to garnet red.
Bouquet: ample and persistent, flowery with hints of rose, complex even up to leather and tar.
Taste: dry, full-bodied, well proportioned, and even velvety.
Min. alcoholic strength: 13% vol.
Ageing: a wine suited to long ageing.
Store: bottle horizontally, in a dark room and away from sudden temperature changes.
Serve: at room temperature approx. 18°C. Excellent with red meats (both roasted, skewered, or grilled) and especially with wild game.

Barolo Bussia

Grown in vineyards in the subarea of Bussia in Monforte d’Alba.
The balance between the clayey and calcareous elements in the soil, the high presence of magnesium and microelements, the temperature ranges of the altitude and location of the valley mouth favour the essentials, in these grapes, of particular fruity notes.

Non-invasive winemaking, lengthy maceration, and ageing in casks of 30 and 60 hectolitres (60 and 120 kegs) produce a velvety wine with smooth tanicity.

Vine species: Nebbiolo.
Colour: from ruby red, it changes, with age, to garnet red.

Barolo Scarrone “Vigna Mandorlo”

Cultivated in the vineyard with the same name, located in the subarea of Scarrone in Castiglione Falletto. A long undisturbed maceration allows us to extract what the grapes have accumulated in the vineyard. Maturing in 30 hectolitre oak casks recombines the infinite components and softens the asperity.

The wine obtained is rich in polyphenols, which, in addition to giving it an intense, deep garnet red colour, gives it a powerful structure, austerity and at the same time is extremely pleasant on the nose and palate. It is the patience and maturing in the bottle that enables this wine to express the charm of its complexity.

With notes of spices, liquorice, tabacco, and white truffle. The captions on the label have been designed to reproduce the way in which the vine rows grow at the foot of Castiglione Falletto castle and with a stylised image of an almond in the centre of the label.
