"Dark cherry, plum, smoke, licorice, menthol and sage meld together in the 2012 Barolo Albarella. This is an especially virile, dense Barolo for the year, with considerable mid-palate richness and quite a bit of near to medium-term appeal. -AG"

100% Nebbiolo

The grapes are from 0.8 ha cru vineyard planted in 1974. The site is located in the village of Barolo, just below the famous Canubi vineyard, sharing the same southwestern exposure and clay soil. Hand-harvested grapes are de-stemmed and put into temperature-controlled stainless steel tank for an extended maceration of up to 350 hours on the skins before undergoing primary fermentation. The wine then goes into oak barrels for natural malolactic fermentation. It matures 26 months in large oak ovals of 16, 25 and 50 hl, 2 months in stainless steel tanks and 6 months in bottle. (300 cases)
