Alasia Barbaresco DOCG

2014

In a Nutshell

Araldica's finest Barbaresco. A selection of their best barrels of Barbaresco are kept aside and blended by Lella Burdese to bottle under the Alasia label.

Tasting Notes

Black fruit aromas, with some savoury, spicy and gently floral characters. Complex and richly flavoured with black cherry, bramble and a hint of violet on the palate. Good structure and fine tannins lead to a long rich finish.

Production Notes

Alasia Barbaresco is produced from a cellar selection of Araldica's best barrels. The grapes are hand-harvested in early October. The Nebbiolo grapes are de-stemmed and crushed to four small fermenters for 12 days, with daily pumping-over. This ensures good colour and flavour extraction, but avoids over extraction of the abundant Nebbiolo tannins. The wine is drained off at dryness and the skins transferred to a small press. After pressing the wine is settled for two days, and then racked to Slavonian oak botte and barrique, where it is aged for 2 years. It is then racked from oak and gently natural egg white fined. Another 6 months maturation in bottle is completed before release.
