2017 Vignarionda Barolo DOCG

Case of 6 bottles

Varietals: 100% Nebbiolo

Ageing/Vinification: The grapes are harvested by hand and placed into small plastic baskets and brought to the winery. For this wine, the grapes are crushed but not destemmed and placed in vertical stainless-steel tanks to undergo alcoholic fermentation. Fermentation takes place with a maceration on the skins for around 30/40 days, during which several daily pumpers take place. After racking and malo-lactic conversion the wine is moved into botti (big barrels) of 2,000 liters where the wine will the undergo a maturation process for 18 to 24 months. After this period, the wine is bottled and laid to rest over 20 months before it is ready to be placed on the market.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Description: Barolo Vignarionda represents the stereotype of Barolo of Serralunga: full, rich, dense but thanks to the slight percentage of sand in the soil, the aromas and finesse are practically unique.

97 Points, Wine Enthusiast: "From one of the most hallowed sites in the denomination, this gorgeous red starts out with heady aromas of crushed berry, camphor, iris and dark spice. Combining the vineyard's celebrated combination of finesse and structure, the delicious palate serves up raspberry compote, ripe Morello cherry and star anise framed in firm, refined tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it impeccably balanced. Drink 2025–2042."
