BAROLO

DOCG

BRICCO SAN BIAGIO

Tradition, depth and elegance

Intense and well defined due to the refinement of the soft tones that characterize it and the gustatory depth of its elegant tannins. Immediately pleasant but certainly capable of giving rare emotions after long refinements of even 30-40 years.
 

GRAPE VARIETY

Nebbiolo grown in Guyot with sustainable viticulture and obtained from the historic vineyard recognizable from afar by the large oak tree that rises in the center.

 

HARVEST

preceded by summer thinning, it falls towards the beginning of October, usually early due to the advanced age of the vineyard and the particular basin shape which allows it to capture the heat and retain it during the night so as to achieve optimal maturation of the polyphenols responsible for the varietal elegance of Nebbiolo.

 

WINEMAKING

Delicate destemming with light pressing and static cold maceration for 1 day.

Alcoholic fermentation at 26° C for a month with frequent punching down. Subsequent splinting of the cap for a further maceration of a month to fix and enhance the "terroir" - unique - that this Mention can express.

 

REFINEMENT

In large Slavonian oak vats for almost 3 years. This is followed by the 1 year bottled one during which the intense sweet scents of powder and peach bone appear contrasted with the bitter notes of cedar and the intense spicy notes.

 

COMBINATIONS

Its elegance and depth make it suitable to accompany structured first courses and preparations with bitter chocolate but above all alongside second courses of long-cooked red meats, rabbit and game. Also excellent with long-matured cheeses.

EXTRACTIONAL NOTES

- colour: intense and brilliant ruby red with garnet shades

- aroma: intense and well defined with notes of dog rose, jam  and cherry in alcohol followed by the persuasive hints of powder and peach bone balanced by those of cedar, licorice and bitter chocolate. Mentioned balsamic tones reminiscent of eucalyptus, resin and menthol.

- taste: full and harmonious, it is striking for its long silky tannins which begin to spread on the palate without weighing it down and then transform into soft and enveloping sensations of jam and cherry in syrup, liquorice and chocolate powder, very long and persistent. The characteristics of tobacco, tar and a fresh mentholated aftertaste are pleasant on the finish.
