Araldica Barolo ‘Flori’
£19.50 – £117.00
Made from Nebbiolo grapes cultivated around the town of Barolo in southern Piemonte. The grapes are hand-harvested, de-stemmed and then crushed to small fermenters, for about 12 days, with daily pumping-over. This ensures good colour and flavour extraction, but avoids over-extraction which can make the abundant Nebbiolo tannins to astringent. After pressing the wine is allowed to settle for two days, and then racked to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. After three years maturation in 50hectolitre Slavonian oak casks it is racked and bottled.
On the nose: A complex nose combining plum, mulberry, ripe strawberry and brown spice with delicate floral and violet notes
On the palate: Tannins are firm and perfectly supported with plump dark fruit and a rounded texture, giving a good lengthy finish.
Recommended combination with food: Perfect with wild boar sausages, venison, roast lamb or gamey stews
