Montaribaldi Barolo "Borzoni" 2006


First planted in 1966, from a grower to producer. Montaribaldi is a family owned estate from the heart of Barbaresco region.

Thanks to the perfect exposure of the “BORZONI” vineyard and to the typical white soil of the Langa hills, the wines obtained are very elegant and extraordinarily long-living.

Barolo DOCG, Italy

Country of Origin:

Red/Rouge (Still)

Grape Variety:
100% Nebbiolo Planted in 1980.

Once in the winery, grapes are destemmed and crushed. Then, they are put in stainless steel thermo-conditioned tanks where the alcoholic fermentation takes place. Alcoholic fermentation lasts at least one week at a temperature of  28-30 °C.
After racking and pouring, the wine remains in contact with its lees (temperature of 20- 22 °C) for at least two months while it completes the malo-lactic fermentation.
Now the wine is ready to start the ageing in oak barrels.  Both new and once-used barriques (225 L) are used.  It lasts 24 months.
Eventually, after more than 2 years from the harvest, the Barolo DOCG Borzoni is bottled and, after at least 4 months of storage in our cellar, it is ready to be marketed.

Tasting Notes:
Colour: Ruby-red with garnet-red tints
Scent in perfume: Great and rich as only the nebbiolo vine can express. Spices and flowers scent with the scents of plum, tobacco, wood fruit and black pepper
Flavour: Austere tannins of big power fill the mouth, nevertheless without causing bitter sensations. On the contrary, the tannin, together with alcohol, gives strong and velvet sensations. The ending is long with sensations reminding jam.
