Barolo Docg Riserva – Virna Borgogno – Mathusalem
In excellent years, those suited to lengthy ageing, we set aside a selection from our best vineyards to make BAROLO RISERVA.
Vinification: Separate crushing and destemming of each single vineyard; maceration with skins for 12-15 days at maximum temperature of 29-31°C. Racking and return are followed by 18 months of élevage in oak barrels. After this phase, 3000 litres of wine from selected vineyards are blended; élevage is then extended an additional 12-18 months in 30 hL barrels.
After bottling, the wine is stored horizontally for at least six months.
Tasting note: Very intense ruby red colour; nose continues fresh with notes of red fruit in a delicate cloud of vanilla. Dry, round and richly full-bodied, with complex polyphenols allowing for lengthy ageing.
