Gagliasso Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata DOCG 2015
Gagliasso Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata DOCG has a medium ruby colour. Beautifully intense and enveloping aromas of wild red berries, smoke and cedar. The dry and medium-bodied palate has assertive tannins, juicy acidity and dense yet plush texture. Fresh flavours of red cherries, raspberries and strawberries with rich hints of leather, mocha and tobacco. Closes in a warm and enduring finish.
100% Nebbiolo. The fruit for this wine comes from vineyards in La Morra. The vineyards have a west-southwest exposure, clay and limestone soils, and vines with an average age of 50 years.
Green harvest in two different times with reduction of grapes (final production at approximately 5500 kg per hectare). Harvesting the grapes at optimum ripeness and with a meticulous selection. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 30–31°C with 30–35 days of maceration. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in the stainless steel vats. The wine ages for 6 months in French barrels (10% new, 90% different years), then the barrels are blended in big casks of 2,500L for 22–24 months. Bottle refinement for 10–12 months.
