Barolo Villero 2009

Barolo Villero 2009 is a journey into oenological history. With its ancient ruby color, it introduces a bouquet of ancient aromas, including notes of aged cherry, dried rose petals, and pipe tobacco. On the palate, it reveals a structure from the past, with velvety tannins and flavors that harken back to preserved fruit, old leather, and a subtle hint of dried leaves. This Barolo is a genuine journey through time.

Barolo Docg Villero

Vegetative cycle

April brought several days of rain, accompanied by mild temperatures, which created conditions for the appearance of mild symptoms of downy mildew.
However, thanks to a May characterized by dry breezes and scrupulous canopy management, these issues were effectively managed.
Although the vine growth cycle had a slightly delayed start, it quickly managed to catch up with the averages of previous years, leading to a moderate advance in the harvest date.
A distinguishing feature of this vintage was a very irregular ripening of the grapes, due mainly to specific microclimatic conditions rather than to the varieties themselves.
In the case of the 2009 Barolo Villero, it is safe to say that this is a vintage suitable for aging.

Climatic trend

The 2009 vintages come from a year that began with a very snowy winter and a rainy spring, thus ensuring a valuable water reserve in the soil for our 2009 Barolo Villero.
During summer, we saw a series of variations between hot and cool weather, with heat peaks in the second half of August and virtually no precipitation. Subsequently, September gave us dry weather and pleasant warmth, contributing to the full ripening of the grapes with a lower than average malic acid content.
