Its dry, full, well-balanced taste is provided by the soft, velvety tannins, while its length and aftertaste are decidedly inviting and intense.
This wine is produced in limited quantities from a single 4 acre vineyard in the village of Serralunga d’Alba. It is aged in small French oak barrels, making it the only Barolo Cru aged in French oak. The steep south-facing terrain and a soil rich in limestone and calcium carbonate makes this area highly suited for producing well-structured, full-bodied and decidedly long lasting wines with intense color and persistence.
|Wine maker notes
|The Nebbiolo grapes used to produce the "Corda della Briccolina” cru are grown on the hills of the village of Serralunga d’Alba in the heart of the Barolo wine-making area.
Following its fermentation on the skins lasting around 15 days, the wine is placed in barriques, where it stays for at least two years.
A further year in the bottle develops an intensely garnet-red coloured wine with a full nose, which has overtones of ripe fruit that blend well with the wood.
