Piemonte (Piedmont)
La Morra (Barolo) Italy
Appellation: Dolcetto d'Alba
Designation: DOC

In a few words: Ruby-red color with delicate garnet reflections. Complex and fruity aroma with fine scents of violet. Rich, warm, robust mouth with long-lasting finish providing smooth tannic sensations.

Site: La Morra – approx. 3200 vines planted on 0.8 hectares, primarily from 15-18 year old vines.

Grapes: 100% Nebbiolo.

Fermentation and Aging: The fermentation is carried out at a controlled temperature of around 28 °C, with delicate, frequent pumping of the must over the skins. After a medium-long maceration on the skins of around 200 hours, the new wine is transferred into stainless steel, where the spontaneous malolactic fermentation takes place. Aging: Langhe Nebbiolo is matured for 6 months, partly in oak; it is then refined in the bottle for 2 months.

Notes: Annual production about 3500 bottles. From declassified Barolo vineyards, aged only in stainless steel. About 10,000 bottles.
