Belcolle Barolo DOCG Simposio 2017

A Symposium of fruits, florals and spice!

An aged 100% Nebbiolo from the heart of Barolo at this price? You won’t find a better deal anywhere else. Crafted from grapes that have been picked from vines with an approximate age of 50, then macerated together for 15 days before being aged for three years in Slavonian casks – it’s a real journey from vine to glass, much like a great symphony. Its garnet red, with a hue of aged orange and is full bodied and aromatic on the nose. Rose, dried herbs and meat, alongside sweet and savoury spice. Its full bodied and robust but also smooth and velvety. Drink now, or in 5 years.

The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine come from vineyards located in Barolo villages, at 200 to 300 ft. above sea level. The average age of the vines is 50 years and they are grown on a southern exposure in calcareous clay soils, at a density of about 5,000 plants per hectare. After harvesting, the grapes are pressed and the must is fermented in temperature-controlled steel tanks after a short period in contact with dry ice to increase complexity and aroma. Skin maceration takes place over 15 days, assuring good color and body. The wine spends 36 months in oak Slavonia casks, and then six months in bottles before shipping.

100% Nebbiolo grapes.
