Beni di Batasiolo Barolo Boscareto (from Serralunga d'Alba) 2008 DOCG
The Nebbiolo grapes used to produce the ‘La Corda della Briccolina’ cru are grown on the hills of the village of Serralunga d’Alba in the heart of the Barolo wine-making area.
The wine is aged in barriques, where it stays for at least two years. A further year in the bottle develops an intensely garnet-red coloured wine with a full nose, which has overtones of ripe fruit that blend well with the wood.
Its dry, full, well-balanced taste is provided by the soft, velvety tannins, while its length and aftertaste are inviting and intense.
Production area of Barolo DOCG, Boscareto in Serralunga d’Alba.
Manual, first half of October.
Stripping and fermentation with maceration on the skins for 10-12 days in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature, with periodic replacements.
Aging is in slavonian oak casks for a minimum of two years and thereafter for at least twelve months in stainless steel tanks.
After this period, the wine is bottled, where it will continue its refinement.
Ideal in combination with dishes based on red meats, game, roasts and cheeses and cured meats. For its nobility, it is pleasant even after a meal as a meditation wine.
