Bricco Barone
Nebbiolo d'Alba Doc

Bricco Barone is a lovely zone on the hills of Monforte d’Alba in Rinaldi. The Nebbiolo d’Alba produced from this soil is robust with great longevity, with a rich bouquet of black fruits and a touch of smoke from its time spent aging in wood.

Variety:
Nebbiolo

Vineyard of production:
Rinaldi - Bricco Barone

Average age of vineyards:
36 years

Yield:
80 quintals per hectare

First year of production:
1990

Winemaking:
Crushing-destemming is followed by spontaneous alcoholic fermentation using indigenous yeasts. It is left in contact with the skins in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, followed by dry racking and cold decantation with transfer to oak barrels of 35 hectoliters.

Malolactic fermentation:
Carried out entirely in barrels immediately after alcoholic fermentation.

Aging:
In barrels for 12 months, followed by assemblage in stainless steel, filtration, and bottling. Rests in the bottle at a constant temperature of 14° C (57° F) for three months before release.

Tasting notes:
With a ruby red color and maroon reflections that develop with age, this wine has delicate aromas of violet, raspberry, cinnamon, tobacco, and black pepper. It has great body, harmonious and spicy, that pairs well with risottos, lightly fried dishes, white truffle fondue, and roasted meat. Will age well in the bottle for another ten years to come. Serve between 16-18° C (61-64° F).
