Wine Bric Cenciurio, Barolo Coste di Rose, 2014
A seductive top wine with grandeur, much finesse, a huge length and a creamy taste. It is made in the vineyard Costi di Rose, right in the heart of Barolo and has by the location of the vineyard the label 'Barolo Cru '.
Red - Savoury and classic. Huge finish. Top-quality Barolo.
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.
