BAROLO MASSARA

D.O.C.G.

Vineyard

The Massara vineyard faces south-east and lies at 265 m. a.s.l. in the village of Verduno, on parcel 137p of land registry map sheet X (planted partly in 1988 and the remainder in 1992). The total area is 1.22,49 hectares, all planted with the Nebbiolo variety. The white soil is mainly chalky clay, known as the “Marne di Sant’Agata” (30% sand – 55% clay – 15% limestone). From this kind of soil we obtain very elegant and fragrant wines, with a great potential ageing

Picking and maceration

The grapes are handpicked , sorting only the best bunches and placing them into a 20 kilos baskets. The harvest took place on October. The maceration in “tino” (open top wooden vat) lasted for 40 days, with regular punching down of the cap and, at the end of the alcoholic fermentation, we used the traditional technique of the “submerged cap” to continue with a static maceration

Ageing

The wine aged for 32 months in large Slavonian oak casks and 2 months in steel tanks, followed by 21 months in the bottle prior to its release on September

Tasting notes

Clear garnet red. A complex and warm blend of herbs, blackberries, mint, sweet liquorice and ripe fruits. Full-bodied and flavoursome with firm tannins and a long tasty finish
