Barolo Arborina is the signature richness of Corino Giovanni farm. The nebbiolo grapes undergo one week of maceration. Skins are left in contact with the juice to intensify the pigmentation of dark ruby color. Cooler fermentation is used to preserve the velvety flavors and warm aromas at 25 to 30 degree Celsius temperature.
The liquid undergoes malolactic fermentation to soften the acidic taste of nebbiolo under a slightly heated atmosphere.
The fermented liquor is kept into small French oak barriques (50% new, 50% old) for two years for further fermentation.
The tannic wine is kept in steel vessels for six months before being filled into glass bottles to be stored for another two years so it adapts to a more silky taste before putting on market for sale.
This warm ruby red Barolo Arborina is derived from 100% nebbiolo grapes from the region of Piedmont. These grapes are known to bud early but ripe really late. These are handpicked from the Arborina vineyard of La Morra. The vineyard is situated on a hillside that is facing south-east. The harvesting yields 5.5 to 6 kg of production every year.
This full-bodied wine ideally served at 14 to 18 degree Celsius goes best with heavy meat dishes like beef or steak items, spicy pastas and risottos.
Alcohol Percentage: 14.5% alcohol/volume
