Ascheri Barolo Pisapola 2012
An expressive cru, the vineyard of Pisapola falls within the communes of La Morra and Verduno, the land is not yet fashionable and in consequence the agriculture is mixed and as wild as Barolo gets. Lighter clays with high percentages of sand are well suited to elegant Nebbiolo and Matteo allows the wine to mirror its terroir.
The Nebbiolo is harvested by hand in the middle of October, the grapes are crushed and fermented in temperature controlled steel tanks for twelve days at twenty eight degrees, the wine is then transferred to old large oak casks for maturation. A wine that grows in stature with each vintage.
A light-footed, mid-weight Barolo. For me, this is a very nostalgic wine with its faded old English rose and wild strawberry nose. A lovely mahogany patina, delicate berry, tobacco, violet and rose flavours, classic confident Barolo with fine tannins and no interfering oak or over-ripeness, a genuine, nuanced wine which perfectly demonstrate the feminine characteristics that are rising the stock of this corner of Barolo.
