Aromas: Opens up with a bright, expressive nose. Red currant, cherries, macerated strawberries and mint are interlaced with floral tones and hints of rosehip, rhubarb, red fig, hawthorn, lavender and licorice.
Taste: The palate is generous, layered and youthful, with ripe tannins and a classic finish on tones of marasca cherry.
Food Pairings: Amazing food wine. Perfect with leg of lamb, truffle risotto, or even roast beef.
Albe is a blend of three wonderful vineyards in Comune di Barolo: Fossati (390-420m abs, Sant’Agata fossil marls), Coste di Vergne (420-480m, Limestone Marls) and La Volta (380-390 m abs, Sant’Agata fossil marls).
Fruit for 2017 Barolo DOCG Albe was picked between September 26th and October 3rd. Vinification was carried in custom-designed vertical tini, with gentle punch down and cap pump-overs, and lasted between 28 and 49 days on average, with partial submerged-cap maceration. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation was held in stainless steel during the following spring.
The 2017 Barolo DOCG Albe aged for 18 months in large Slavonian oak casks of 40, 50 and 75 hL. The wines were racked once, in the summer of 2018, and blended right before the bottling.
