Barolo DOCG 2012 Bussia Dardi le Rose
Price per bottle 0,75l
The Dardi di Bussia subzone is historically considered one of the great Barolo crus. It is mentioned, for example, in the "Monograph on Viticulture and Oenology in the Province of Cuneo" by L. Fantini of 1880 and in the Atlas of the Great Langa Vineyards published by Arcigola Slow Food, as one of the most prestigious wines.
Intense garnet red, ample and elegant bouquet delicately spiced, with hints of flowers, small red fruits and tar. On the palate, an opulent structure buoyed by soft tannins, overlaid with ripe fruit and liquorice. A ‘majestic’ traditional nebbiolo with the power, harmony and complexity of a great orchestra! Extraordinary ageing capacity.
Perfect in combination with red meat and furred game dishes, but also very rich fish dishes, such as baked turbot, as well as with fine cheeses.
Wine FeaturesWinery: Poderi Colla
Grapes Used: 100% Nebbiolo
Style: A traditional, “majestic” Nebbiolo with the might, balance and complexity of a symphony orchestra! Extraordinary ageing capacity. Despite its strong personality, Barolo can be enjoyed frequently with red meat and ground game, even – why not? – with very rich fish dishes, such as baked turbot, or a dinner featuring speciality cheeses.
Vinification: Grapes are hand-picked, destalked and crushed; the must successively macerates on the skins for 12/15 days at a maximum temperature of about 30° C., and malolactic fermentation ensues, completed before winter.
Ageing: In the spring, the wine sojourns in oak casks for a period from 24 to 28 months.
Bottle Size: 0,75l
Colour: Deep, intense ruby-red in colour.
Taste: Full-bodied and strongly structured, it stays on the palate with supple tannin sensations, covered with fragrant notes of ripe fruit and liquorice.
Aroma: Rich and refined bouquet, delicately spiced, bringing out floral tones, mingled with red berry fruit and tar.
