Lapo Berti Barolo del Comune di La Morra
Barolo La Morra
The wine comes from two plots in La Morra, Bricco Rocca and Fossati. This makes for a wine with intense aromatics, red fruit, flowers and spice, combined with a robust backbone a characteristic of Fossati and a minerality and lightness given by Bricco Rocca. The vineyards are in conversion to organic farming, which will be certified in 2017. The vines are dry farmed and the fruit is picked by hand and crushed the morning after picking to allow a little pre-fermentation maceration. The fermentation is spontaneous and relies on the indigenous yeasts, it takes place partially in steel tanks and partially in open barrels, in both cases the wine remained on the skins for just over three weeks. The wine is then transferred to used barrels (first used in 2006 and 2009) for malolactic conversion and ageing, after which the wine is assembled and bottled without filtration.
Violet, black berries and spice on the nose, firm structure with a great clarity of flavour.
Best drunk 2020 – 2025, this is very subjective! It drinks beautifully now and should keep until 2030.
