Poderi Barolo, Italy
Varietal(s): 100% Nebbiolo
Barolo is “the king of wines and the wine of kings”. A full-bodied, dry taste that’s rich, yet smooth and well-balanced and bulging with fruit and spiciness.
Grapes are sourced from Sarotto’s 20ha of vineyards in San Ponzio, Barolo purchaced in 1991. Before the harvest the grapes of the oldest vineyards, which have ripened best, are selected to be picked with care for separate vinification. Cold maceration followed by fermentation for 20 days, then 2 months in stainless steel and 24 months in French oak barrique.
Poderi della Collinetta are wines made with the great passion of a famous winemaker, Roberto Sarotto. He has a strong belief in traditional values, but at the same time not afraid to take new ways and can be considered a “local pioneer” in the wine field.
A really great full – bodied wine, complex and seductive on the nose, rich and soft on the palate. It is full of character and vigour, yet delicate, elegant, harmonious, with hints of wood and almonds and clear-cut tannins.
