2017 Alasia Barbaresco, Araldica, Piemonte

Original price was: £19.25.Current price is: £16.70. inc. VAT

Seriously good value Barbaresco here from Araldica, a very forward thinking Co-operative based in northern Italy. This is produced from the winery’s best barrels of Barbaresco and has all the characteristics you want from quality Nebbiolo.

Alasia Barbaresco is produced from a cellar selection of Araldica’s best barrels. The grapes are hand-harvested in early October. The Nebbiolo grapes are de-stemmed and crushed to four small fermenters for 12 days, with daily pumping-over. This ensures good colour and flavour extraction, but avoids over extraction of the abundant Nebbiolo tannins. The wine is drained off at dryness and the skins transferred to a small press. After pressing the wine is settled for two days, and then racked to Slavonian oak botte and barrique, where it is aged for 2 years. It is then racked from oak and gently fined. Another 6 months maturation in bottle is completed before release.

Black fruit aromas, with some savoury, spicy and gently floral characters. Complex and richly flavoured with black cherry, bramble and a hint of violet on the palate. Good structure and fine tannins lead to a long rich finish.
