Barolo DOCG, Langhe DOC, Barbera d'Alba DOC
An entry level Barolo with a strong sense of place from a single parcel. Dark ruby color with lively highlights. It has an intense, ethereal nose with dark cherry, licorice, withered rose, and a complex array of earth and spice aromas. The palate is firm and the finish is dry with noticeable tannin.
POINTS OF INTEREST
From a single, 1-hectare parcel facing east in Monforte d'Alba, these younger vines represent exceptional value from just outside the Bussia MGA. As with all of Claudio's Baroli, fermentation is spontaneous and he treats all the Barolo in the cellar the same; 40 days maceration, 6 months in tank, 30 months in large neutral barrel before bottling. Practicing organic.
