WINERY NOTES: "Source Vines/Vineyards: MGA Bricco Boschis, parcel of “Vigna San Giuseppe” – Nebbiolo for Barolo 100%. Characteristics of the wine: Vinification: fermented with indigenous yeasts, macerated with submerged cap for 20-35 days. Ageing: Traditional in Slavonian Oak Casks for 4-5 years. Bottle Ageing: 12 months before release into the market. Organoleptic Characteristics: From this cru come wines of great structure but with elegance and complexity. The initial perfumes are fruity and followed by floral aspects, then spices, all open and intense. Generally excellent cellaring potential. Gastronomic Accompaniment: This wine finds its best matches at the table, with first courses of prosciutto, salami, Alba beef tartare and vitello tonnato. The wine is best with second courses of red meat in general, but also grilled fish or white meats, or with hard and aged cheeses. Desserts with dark chocolate are also a good match, or it can be enjoyed as a “vino da meditazione” (a wine for meditiation) by iteslf."
Limited stock - maximum two bottles per customer (until larger stock available).
