Giblin Barolo Riserva
TYPE OF FARMING:
Conversion to organic
Beginning of October
Fermentation in stainless steel vats for around 10 days, followed by prolonged maceration for 20 days.
The wine matures in medium toast Allier oak barriques for over 24 months and then for about another 18 months in bottle prior to release.
Ruby red in colour with garnet reflections, this is a Barolo which really packs a punch. It has intense fragrances of red berry fruits (raspberries in particular), enriched by an elegant floral touch of dried rose petals, spices and an intriguing nuance of burnt timber. On the palate it is again delightfully spicy and fruity, and sustained by highly concentrated, splendidly well-integrated tannins.
