Barolo ENRICO VI DOCG CORDERO DI MONTEZEMOLO
From the wise vinification of 100% pure Nebbiolo grapes that the Cordero di Montezemolo winery vinifies paying great attention to the respect of tradition. The origin of the grapes comes from a single piece of land of 2.2 hectares owned outside the municipality of La Morra. Located in one of the most historic and prestigious hills of Barolo, the Villero, in Castiglione Falletto the vineyard of just over two hectares of surface differs for a very calcareous soil and rich in microelements.The harvest takes place in mid-October and provides for the vinification in a immediately subsequent stage with the maceration of 10 days that takes place in stainless steel tanks as well as the completion of fermentation for the following 12 days. Then the wine, transferred in small French oak barrels, undergoes malolactic fermentation and completes it. The wine ages slowly for about 20 months in small French oak barrels.
Barolo ENRICO VI DOCG's features
To the aspect evidenced by the organoleptic examination, the wine has an intense garnet red color. The nose offers a fine spiciness that recalls the notes of eucalyptus, licorice and menthol as well as those of ripe fruit such as cherry under spirit, blackberry and plum and a slight hint of violet and medicinal herbs. The taste in the mouth is absolute and powerful, slightly acidic, fresh, and endless.
