Marchesi di Barolo Barolo del Comune di Barolo 2015
The grapes that contribute to the production of this particular Barolo cuvée come exclusively from the estate’s "Historical Crus" vineyards. They are located in the municipality of Barolo on sloping hills made up of calcareous clay interspersed with compact layers of grey sandstone and covered with quartz sand and fine silt. Nebbiolo is the quintessential eclectic grape that extracts many mineral nutrients from the compact clay and limestone soil, enriching its structure. At the same time, it takes on the fragrant and spicy aromas from the loose sand and silt soil. The goal is to obtain the best cuvée possible by harmoniously synthesizing the vintage’s many characteristics, taking into account the climatic trends and Nebbiolo’s overriding personality, which are based on the microclimate and the quality of the soil of each single vineyard.
Initially, the wine ages in small oak barrels then it is blended in the traditional big Slavonian oak barrels, making it harmonious and well-balanced, and enhancing the elegance of the bouquet. Before going onto the market, the wine completes its fining in the bottle for a few months. Barolo del Comune di Barolo reaches maturity 3 years after being harvested and the peak condition is when it is 30 years old.
The color is garnet red with ruby reflections. The aroma is intense and persistent with distinct traces of spices, cinnamon, absinth, tobacco and wild rose. The taste is full and elegant, with soft tannins. The spicy note and the hints of wood blend perfectly.
