Name: Barolo Docg Villero
Variety: 100% nebbiolo
Vineyard: in the territory of Castiglione Falletto; South; South/West exposure; clayey and calcareous soil with marls; depth on the marl 1 metre. The rootstock is Kober; age of vines 30-35 years; density of vines 4500/hectare.
Vinification: in red by crushing and destemming; fermentation in steel at controlled temperature for 10/15 days, successive skin submerged-cap maceration for 20/25 days. Racking in small wooden barrels for malolactic fermentation, then decanting and ageing in new small and second passage wooden barrels for two years. Afterwards, bottling and refinement in bottles for 1-2 years.
Description: the colour is thick garnet red, with an old-fashioned and measured elegance: scents of dried flowers, barely macerated wild strawberries, reminiscences of spices, balsamic whispers and very clear iron and mineral notes. Consistent in the mouth: again much freshness and a full-bodied note that make it pleasant to drink, covering but not removing the richness and a structure that are typical of a first-class wine, underlined by tannins that leave their marks without stealing the scene.
