Grape Variety
Usually cultivated in an area of ​​Piedmont and in some places at the foot of the Alps. Nebbiolo wines always have a ruby ​​color with garnet reflections, which turn into more orange tones after aging. These wines show fresh fruity notes in their youth; while over the years they often develope elegant notes of dried flowers, sometimes undergrowth. It can develop spicy, tobacco and goudron tertiary hints. Wines of constant good structure, whose tannins generally take many years to soften.
Terroir
The term Langhe derives from an ancient Celtic word that expressed the concept of “stretchs of land”. In this region hills are often flanked in parallel and steep. The soils have sedimentary and marine origin, mainly calcareous. These, however, vary considerably a short distance away, sometimes including bluish tuff, other times veins of clay, or banks of sand and fossils. The climate is strongly influenced by the protection of the Alps and by the mild currents of the nearby Ligurian Sea. The presence of considerable altimetries, valleys and sun exposures generate a kaleidoscope of micro-climatic situations. The combination of different terrains and environments makes clear, as in few parts of the world, the importance of distinguishing wines through geographical sub-area mentions.
Uomo
Silvio has chosen to produce this Barolo with the style of the past. Grapes from different vineyards often also have different harvesting moments; the vinifications are made separately. Subsequently the assembly is carried out in a single mass to be refined in barrels. This method guarantees a wine of absolute harmony, often very similar through different vintages.
Vinification and finishing
Vinification of the grapes at controlled temperature at the time of harvest in the individual vineyards. Quite long maceration, 20-25 days. After malolactic fermentation, refinement of about 2 years in large barrels, followed by a further refinement of at least 1 year in bottle.
Tasting notes
Characteristic garnet red color. The nose has a varied bouquet of red fruits and spicy notes. It is a wine of great structure and power, round, with a good balance between the expressions of the fruit, acidity, alcohol and tannins, even if the latter are angular in a young wine, not completely evolved. In the mouth long and persistent sensations of fruits and tannins.
