Description

Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno Barolo DOCG 2018

Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno Barolo is a gentle and elegant wine. Clear and refined nose of blackberries and violet florals with delicate traces of vanilla and clove spices. The intense and dry palate has decisive tannins and a smooth texture. Ripe blackberry and plum fruit flavours are surrounded by spicy notes of leather, tobacco and chocolate. Closes in a decidedly persistent finish.

100% Nebbiolo. The fruit for this wine mainly comes from the municipality of Novello. The south facing vines grow in calcareous-clay soils at 350 metres above sea level.

Harvest of the fruit by hand in October. Maceration takes place in wooden vats for about 15–20 days with frequent pumping over. Malolactic fermentation occurs spontaneously in steel. The wine ages in 25–50 HL Slavonian oak barrels for different lengths of time depending on individual vintages. Finally, the wine ages in bottle for 6 months laid horizontally.


AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 

"Fruitiness is one of the distinctive features of this tasty Barolo 2018. The nose offers a clear, exuberant fruit, accompanied by a crunchy blackberry and delicate spicy elements. The taste moves on a consistent texture, rightly tannic, always in tune with the nose, as in the final, savory, dry, decidedly persistent."
