    "Albe" Barolo DOCG 2020
  • Albe is the caress of the sun that rises each morning over the vineyards of this Barolo. It is the exceptional simplicity of Nature that makes possible the daily miracle of life awakening. With these beautiful words Milena Vaira describes this extraordinary bottle. Barolo DOCG, a wine that perfectly embodies the elegance and power of this noble territory. Grapes harvested in the hamlet of Vergne, 380 metres above sea level, on clay soils exposed to the south-east and south-west. Here, a special microclimate, characterised by strong temperature variations between day and night, favours optimal ripening of the grapes, giving the wine structure and complexity. 100% Nebbiolo, after manual harvesting, the bunches are pressed in vertical steel vats to begin alcoholic fermentation, which lasts 30-40 days, with maceration on the skins. In spring, the wine spontaneously undergoes malolactic fermentation and is then aged for between 18 and 36 months in large Slavonian oak casks. Transparent ruby colour with garnet hues, on the nose, it is clearly reminiscent of violets, rose hips, cloves and cinnamon, joined by intense notes of dark jam, resin and blond tobacco. In the mouth, it conquers with its harmony, freshness and elegance. A complex and long-lived wine that offers an unforgettable sensory experience.
