Ascheri Nebbiolo dAlba San Giacomo
Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC
For the last 8 years Matteo has been developing a system where the Dolcetto tanks are not cleaned after it has finished fermenting and the same tank is used for the Nebbiolo. This gives the bacteria and yeasts a head start and helps massively with malolactic fermentation.
The harvest is in the first two weeks of October and the fruit is mainly from Verduno with some from Serralunga.
The fermentation is quite short, nine days and at the higher end of the temperature spectrum, around 28˚C, this is to open the tannins up a little which makes it easier to enjoy the wine young.
A fresh vintage which remained un-tampered with. The tannins matured early and allow violet and tar to emerge through berry and strawberry. A lithe and handsome example of Nebbiolo which is ready to drink and will develop over the next couple of years (to 2017). 14%
