2015 First Vintage

BAROLO-SERRA-DEI-TURCHI-2015

Vintage description

2015 began with heavy snowfall that allowed for a good accumulation of water in the soil. The vegetative cycle was anticipated, and after a mild spring came a very hot and dry summer. Thanks to the winter water reserves, the plants did not undergo any stress, which allowed for an excellent ripening of the fruit.

Notes

This wine is dedicated to our founder Paolo Colla, who started producing Barolo in 1961, in the commune of La Morra. His passion and love for Barolo gave him the courage to move here from his native town Diano d’Alba, famous for Dolcetto wine. We select the smaller bunches from the best parts of the plot. The berries are carefully detached by hand from the stalks to keep them entire. The fermentation takes place with indigenous yeasts, in a small dedicated container, and the wine is aged in a single 228-liters 7 years old barrel. The first harvest was 2015 and we produced 130 numbered magnums of 1,5 liters.
