2016 Barolo, Camilla, Bruna Grimaldi, Piedmont, Italy

Description

This classical Barolo is a blend of five vineyards across four villages: Bricco Ambrogio in Roddi; Borzone and Raviole in Grinzane Cavour; Roere di Santa Maria in La Morra; and Badarina in Serralunga d’Alba. The wine was aged in French tonneaux (60%) and 21-hectolitre botti (40%). Generously layered with inviting rose fragrance, bramble fruit and earth, the Serralunga fruit provides sapidity and length. Fresh yet plush, it’s approachable now. Drink 2022-2036.

About this WINE

Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo is the grape behind the Barolo and Barbaresco wines and is hardly ever seen outside the confines of Piedmont. It takes its name from "nebbia" which is Italian for fog, a frequent phenomenon in the region.

A notoriously pernickety grape, it requires sheltered south-facing sites and performs best on the well-drained calcareous marls to the north and south of Alba in the DOCG zones of Barbaresco and Barolo.

Langhe Nebbiolo is effectively the ‘second wine’ of Piedmont’s great Barolo & Barbarescos. This DOC is the only way Langhe producers can declassify their Barolo or Barbaresco fruit or wines to make an early-drinking style. Unlike Nebbiolo d’Alba, Langhe Nebbiolo can be cut with 15% other red indigenous varieties, such as Barbera or Dolcetto.

Nebbiolo flowers early and ripens late, so a long hang time, producing high levels of sugar, acidity and tannins; the challenge being to harvest the fruit with these three elements ripe and in balance. The best Barolos and Barbarescos are perfumed with aromas of tar, rose, mint, chocolate, liquorice and truffles. They age brilliantly and the very best need ten years to show at their best.
