Bricco “San Pietro” Barolo

Productive procedure
Manual grape harvest in crates, crushing, de-stemming and fermentation “a cappello emerso” with daily pump overs, prolonged maceration, besides fermentation, for 30 – 35 days, after the racking off, it is decanted various times to prepare the wine for the maleolactic fermentation and within December the ageing process in wood begins and, in this case, lasts at least three years. After the bottling, that takes place in summer, the wine evolves in the bottle, for another 12 months before entering the market.

 

Tasting
Vivid bright ruby red colour with slight orangey reflexes.
The nose reveals a clear ample scent with notes of cherry, violet, cloves, liquorice and leather.
On the palate it is full, harmonic and warm, with a slightly dry and pleasantly spicy aftertaste.

 

Comment
An important wine, with great character and longevity. It accompanies meat based second courses or well-aged and mountain pastured cheeses.
