Amount of sulfites: at least 80% less than the extent permitted by law.
Average production: 45 hl per hectare. Growing location: this Barolo is made from carefully selected grapes grown on estate vineyards in the villages of Serralunga d'Alba and Barolo.
Vineyards: facing south, south-west and west on medium-high hillsides (300-450 m asl), on typically clay and calcareous marl-rich soils of MioceneHelvetian and Tortonian origin.
Characteristics: keeping up a tradition, Barolo Riserva Miraore is made blending wines coming from dierent estate vineyards. These vineyards can vary, depending on the characteristic of the vintages. Anyway, blending is made just when the malolactic fermentation is completed. A very long maceration and a few transfers during the oak barrel ageing, allows it to anticipate the evolution of the tertiary aromas before bottling. The perfect polyphenolic ripening of the grapes before harvesting, favours the extraction of a big quantity of sweet tannins, which at the end of ageing build a dense silky weft. In the glass, Barolo Riserva is a wine that can oer great emotions: ruby highlights still show on its deep garnet red colour, while its intense, clear-cut nose hints at spicy aromas like wormwood, then cocoa, mint, black cherry, leather and dried mushrooms. Its sweet, velvety tannins blend nicely on its smooth taste, helping to ensure a very long nish, warm and fascinating.
Wine Making: the fermentation is traditional, lasting 12-15 days in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. The wine then stays on the skins for a further 30-40 days, with a “submerged head” maceration to optimize the extraction of the polyphenolic substances.
Aging: in order to be labelled as a "Riserva” (Reserve), according to the law Barolo wine must have undergone at least 5 years of maturing before it is released. The rst three years are spent in medium and big size oak barrels (20-140 hectolitres), then the wine ages for one year in large concrete tanks and – nally – for the last one in bottle.
Food Match: ideal match for big red meat dishes, and medium and mature cheeses, this wine also provides pleasant company during afterdinner conversation.
