Cascina Adelaide, 4 Vigne Barolo, DOCG
An absolute stunner. Brilliant garnet colour, plum, wild blueberry, cinnamon and liquorice delight the nose. Gentle on the palate with elegantly fused tannins.
4 Vigne (Vineyards) on La Morra, Elevetian and Tortonian soil. Every aspect of work in these vineyards is done by hand, including of course harvest.
The grapes are sent to a drying room for 12 hours to remove excess moisture before being gently crushed to avoid the stalks tainting the must. Fermented at 28 ° C with continuous but delicate pumping over to extract maximum colour, intensity and tannins from the skins. Macerated for almost 2 weeks before malolactic fermentation in wooden barrels, and then 4 and half years ageing in oak.
