Saffirio Barolo DOCG
A classic ‘Castelletto’
Barolo, the soils are known locally as ‘Elveziano’, maritime deposits with limestone, clay and sand, excellent drainage and rich in nutrients.
VINIFICATION: Soft pressing of the hand-harvested grapes with destalking, followed by fermentation in temperature controlled tanks at 30/32 degrees C (86/88 F). The skins are macerated for 10 days and the wine is racked when fermentation has been completed.
SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS: Garnet-red in colour with ruby reflections. An intense odour with clean scents of roses, vanilla, roasted hazelnuts, liquorice, tobacco and cinnamon. Fruity clean scents with strawberry and mulberry flavour. A full, elegant and austere flavour with a good body and recurring olfactory sensations. The perfectly blended hints of fruits and wood are extremely appealing.
