Luca Barbaresco riserva docg

 

Grape-variety: 100% Nebbiolo

Vineyard: Three vineyards located in the Asili, Cole and Ovello crus in Barbaresco produced the grapes for this wine on a total of 1.55 hectares

Soil: Hard and compact, mainly composed of clay and limestone

Position: Facing south, south-west, west

Altitude: Between 240 and 270 m

Vine-training: Arched-cane Guyot

Vinification: Crushing and de-stemming of the grapes in the winery were followed by fermentation of the must on the skins lasting 15 days

Maturation: After drawing off and partial clarification, the wine was matured for 30 months in casks of French oak holding 20 and 23 Hl

Ageing: Prior to its release, the wine was aged after bottling for at least 12 months in bottles lying down in the dark and peace & quiet of the cellar

Tasting notesDeep garnet-red, showing the first hints of orange. Full, complex nose, with elegant ripe fruit and appealing liquorice, vanilla and cinnamon overtones. Full-bodied, dry taste with great structure

Food pairings: A big wine to go with well-structured, flavoursome food. At its very best with meat-based dishes, but great with mature cheeses too, and on its own as a meditation wine

Storage: Best kept at a constant temperature and without any movement in the dark and silence of an underground cellar
