Barolo is a delicious red wine from the Piedmont region of Northern Italy. It is made strictly from Nebbiolo grapes.
Aromatic with rich tannins and characteristics of old oak, these wines are considered by most to be some Italy’s finest.
Traditionally a wine enjoyed by gentry, Barolo grows in the region’s finest plots of soil.This wine is robust with evident notes of red flowers on the nose. The palate will enjoy significant acid and strong, long, earthy finish. These wines collect well, although consult a specialist to get a hold of of the best vintages.Pair this food with big and flavorful pastas, or proteins – steak and well-spiced veal. Avoid underseasoned vegetables, leafy greens, or seafood.The Nebbiolo grape does not travel well and is high maintenance, which is why it has never thrived quite as well elsewhere as on the Piemontese slopes. Like its top contender, Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo takes kindly to its terroir, thus displaying the subtleties of its environment.
De-stemming and soft pressing of the grapes, fermentation in stainless steel tanks of medium dimension with inoculation of selected yeast. The fermentation last for 5/6 days, but we decided to extend the maceration time to maximize the extraction of polyphenolic compounds for extra 5/6 days, with a maximum of 12 days.
We proceed with two delestages at the beginning of fermentation phase together with continuous and automatic pumping over. After racking off we proceed with a short operation of micro-oxygenation, to improve stabilization of the colour, followed by malolactic fermentation induced with selected yeast.
