Barolo DOCG del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba

Grapes derive from the Vughera area, cru of Serralunga. A wine with a fresh and tart component.

A Barolo with a classic bouquet coming from the vine variety and the soil: hints of withered rose, undergrowth, prunes, liquorice and spices.

A bright ruby red color with an orange rim, fresh wine with a tart component and tannins sustaining a good structure.

The aromas are elegant, with a good intensity. The fruit is sweet, with more evolved sensations echoing tobacco and dried herbs.

Its full-bodied flavour makes it ideal for red meats and feathered game, particularly when braised.

Best served: Between 16 and 18°C

Winemaking

Grapes are entirely handpicked, destemmed and pressed, then left to ferment for about 10 days in vats at a temperature of 18-26°C.

Submerged cap maceration for the following 8-10 days and, once finished the fermentation and maceration the drawing-off process takes place followed by a few pouringius in the next days.

Before transferring the wine to the ageing area, it undertakes a malolactic fermentation.
