Winemaking - In the cellar the fermentation process is traditional, 7-10 days in stainless steel vats with a floating cap at a controlled temperature (30º-31ºC). The must then stays on the skins for a further 15 days to optimise the extraction of the polyphenolic substances and help start the subsequent malolactic fermentation. A long stay in large oak casks (70%) and barriques (30%) precedes bottling, and is followed by a further period of maturation which depends on the vintage, though it never lasts less than 6 months.

What it tastes like - Full-bodied, velvety and intense, this Barolo is heady with vanilla, dried roses and woodland undergrowth. Ideal with big red meat dishes and medium mature cheeses, try a wild boar and mushroom risotto for example.
