BAROLO DOCG SOTTOCASTELLO DI NOVELLO 2015

Red
Type: Red

Growing location: the vineyard lies in the village of Novello, on the highly-prized “Sotto Castello di Novello” (below the castle of Novello) cru facing south, south-east at an average altitude of 400 m asl. The fairly deep limestone soil has medium consistency with good drainage. The vines are planted with a density of 4,500 per hectare, and are trained on vertical trellises and pruned using the Guyot system.
Year of planting: 1999 e 2002

Wine-making process: vinification on the skins, with a submerged cap and daily pumping over of the must. The maceration is extended for several days following the alcoholic fermentation by steeping the cap in order to increase the extraction and stabilize the colour extracted; after the wine has been drawn off and racked several times, it undergoes malolactic fermentation in steel before being transferred to oak by the end of the year to mature for at least three years in Oak barrels prior to bottling, which takes place several months before the wine is released.

Tasting notes: deep, bright ruby red with slight orange hues; expansive, clear-cut nose, with hints of violet, vanilla, cinnamon, sweet tobacco and liquorice; very structured, soft mouth-filling taste, which is lightly dry with an appealing, long, spicy finish. Its structure and wealth of polyphenols give this wine an exceptionally long cellar life, during which its tasting properties continue to develop.
