3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Serragrilli is a mild hill located in the community of Neive. It is completely south-west exposed and Nebbiolo grapes receive the rays of the sun until late evening. The soil has a uniform composition: it is compact and the percentage between macro and microelements is homogeneous. The vineyards extends in the higher part of the hill up to the top

Tasting notes
Garnet red colour with ruby reflections. An intensearoma with clean scents of fruit, dog roses and spices. The flavor is full, elegant and full-bodied with sensations that remind to the olfactory ones.

Wine maker notes
VINIFICATION: The grapes are collected exclusively by hand and quickly taken to the cellar where they are destalked and softly pressed. Then the grapes undergo fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28 30 degrees C. (82-86 F.). The maceration of the skins lasts 8 days, during which time the fermenting juice is regularly recycled from the bottom to the top of the tank in order to ensure an elegant tannin extraction as well as a soft extraction of color. Once the fermentation is finished the natural sugars of the grape are totally converted into alcohol. AGING: The wine is then racked into concrete tanks, lined with fiberglass and insulated by cork, where it remains for a while at the post-fermentation temperature of 22 degrees C. (72 F.). The malolactic fermentation begins in these tanks naturally and normally it ends in December. The Barbaresco is aged in oak for 1 year, a part in Slavonian oak barrels (30 or 35 hectoliters / 789-947 U.S. gallons) and the other part in little French oak barrels (225 liters) that are moderately toasted. The two parts are then blended in traditional big oak barrels and the wine completes the fining in bottle for 12 months, before going into the market. Serragrilli produces a Barbaresco that is upfront, assertive and full bodied but at the same time it is harmonic and balanced with sweet tannins not too evident. This contributes to its incredible aging potential that goes from 4 to 20 years.
