Barbaresco Roncaglie is a charming wine, both elegant and appealing, with velvety spice notes on the nose and palate and with a long finish. Excellent ageing potential. Grapes are hand-picked, destalked and crushed; the must successively macerates on the skins for approximately 12/15 days at a maximum temperature of about 30° C., and malolactic fermentation ensues, completed before winter. In the spring, the wine sojourns in oak casks for a period from 12 to 14 months.
Deep, intense ruby-red in colour, with a complex and lively aroma with earthy notes of blackberry, wild rose and violet. A “classic” Barbaresco that maintains the underlying elegance of the Roncaglie cru: it is full, pervasive and intense on the palate. A lovely wine with a strong personality and a very long, final velvet tannin sensation with great ageing potential.
This is a fine wine for the whole meal, finding its best match in red meats and game birds.
