2015 Bosco Agostino Barolo La Serra DOCG ~ Red Wine
100% Nebbiolo grapes from a historical Cru of La Morra, Piedmont. The vineyard faces southeast at an altitude of about 400 metres and the soils are tuffaceous and calcareous providing this wine with structure and tannins suitable for long aging.
Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28-30 °C. Maceration lasts 20-22 days. After racking, the wine is held at about 20°C for malolactic fermentation to take place. The wine is then placed in small French oak barrels and tonneaux for approximately 6-7 months before transferral to 2000 litre Slavonian oak casks to age 23-24 months. At the end of this period, it is bottled in August and released the following March.
It has a complex bouquet of berry jam and brandied cherries, with detectable spicy notes.
This is a classic style Barolo.
