Vietti Barolo Cerequio DOCG 2018

HK$ 2,245

The grapes to produce this wine are sourced from the historical Cru vineyard Cerequio, one of the most renowned MGAs in the Barolo area. Vietti’s parcel of about 1 hectare size is located in the Barolo municipality. It is facing south, at an altitude of approximately 350 meters a.s.l.. The average age of the grapevines is 35 years, and they are planted, with a density of 4,600 vines per hectare, trained in the Guyot trellis system. The soil is calcareous and clayey with Sant’Agata’s marls. 2018 is the first vintage of the Cru Cerequio produced by Vietti.

Hand-picked on October 5th, 2018, the grapes have been destemmed and gently crushed before bringing them into stainless steel tanks for the alcoholic fermentation. They have spent about three weeks in contact with their skins. This time includes the pre- and post-fermentation maceration, using the traditional submerged cap method. Malolactic fermentation takes place in wood.

The wine has been aged for 32 months in large oak casks and in barriques. It was bottled without filtration.

Tasting Note: Intense ruby red colour. Generous nose with aromas of ripe red berry fruit with spicy overtones. Intense on the palate, quite rich though very elegant and well-balanced. The tannins are present, but very well integrated in the fruit structure of the wine. Long aftertaste with good freshness. A wine with extraordinary finesse and balance.

Food pairings: Red meats, roasts, wild game.
