TASTING NOTES

This Barolo opens with stunning aromas of black cherries, plums, raspberries and rose petals. The palate is full-bodied and robust and recalls cherry marinated in spirits, roasted coffee bean and toasted hazelnut alongside fine and integrated tannins.

WINEMAKING NOTES

The Nebbiolo grapes are handpicked from low yields, south and southwest facing vineyards planted on the hills of the Barolo sub-region Bussia at 250 mt. (asl). After a prolonged maceration on the skins, the fermentation takes place for 10-12 days at controlled temperature (max. 28°C) which is then followed by a further maceration on the skins for 15-20 days. The wine is then aged for 36 months in big French oak barrels.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Marco and Micaela Bonfante, are eighth-generation farmers in the Barolo region. For all the generations prior to them, the Bonfante family had been farmers growing grapes, and then selling them off to other producers. It wasn’t until 2000, when their grandfather passed away, that Marco and Micaela changed family tradition by starting their own family winery and vinifying their grapes. The winery is a family-run company; Marco, graduated from the Oenological School of Alba, he is the wine maker and deals with the production and management of the company at 360 degrees.
