Wine Bric Cenciurio, Barolo Coste di Rose, 2014
Red - A seductive, premium Barolo wines that present depth, intensity, and a lingering finish.
Ruby-garnet red, pale, clear colour. This opens with aromas of rose petal, red berry and a hint of eucalyptus, new leather, and tobacco, with some floral character. The juicy palate delivers red cherry, cranberry and clove set against a backdrop of austere tannins and bright acidity.
This is a food wine to be enjoyed with grilled or BBQ'd red meats, aged cheese and Asian cuisine.
Nebbiolo, divided into three different types: Michet, Lampia and Rosè. The vineyards are in the municipality of Barolo on the border with Monforte d'Alba in the “Coste di Rose” sub-area. The soils of this area give rise to wines that are rich and savoury, restraint and rebellious in their youth but with a great ability to mature and improve over the years, revealing all the elegance of a great Barolo.
30 months in large Slovenian oak barrels, then 10 months in bottle before release.
After pressing, the grapes remain for a day at 5 - 7'C, then fermentation and maceration will begin which will last 30 - 40 days. Shortly after racking, the wine begins 2 years of ageing in large Slavonian oak barrels (2,500 litres). The last ageing period includes a stay of 6 months in steel barrels and a further 10 months in the bottle.
