|Our Barolo is vinified according to tradition: fairly lengthy fermentations on the skin (submerged cap for 15-20 days), with frequent breaking up of the cap and pumping over of the must, followed by maturing in French oak casks, holding between 2,500 and 3,500 litres.
In addition to “regular” Barolo, we also produce a single vineyard “ROCCHE DELL’ANNUNZIATA”: one of the best area’s crus.
Here the vineyards looking out over the Torriglione hamlet – in the shelter of a “hollow” lying between the hills of San Martino and Cerequio-Brunate – are “kissed” by the sun from early morning till late in the afternoon.
The rich, clayey-calcareous soil of the ROCCHE combines with the altitude (approx. 270 m. a.s.l.) and position (south – south-west) to produce a Barolo which is full of body, yet soft and very fragrant.
