Schiavenza Barolo Serralunga 2012
Not Vintage Specific
Item Number: 24905
Wine Spectator 91
"Elegant and solidly built, with floral, cherry, strawberry and mineral flavors buoyed by vibrant acidity and dense tannins. Stays fresh and persistent, presenting a lingering, mineral-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2032. 845 cases made." ~ BS
Sourced from several different parcels all located in the village of Serralunga d'Alba at altitudes of 300-400 metres above sea level; the vineyards have south-east and west exposures, and are composed mostly of calcareous and tuffaceous ground. Vines are planted at a density of 4,000 plants per hectare and trained using the guyot growing system. The fruit was harvested in the second half of October; fermentation lasted for 15-20 days at 25-30 °C, with frequent racking.
Good value - My wife and I enjoyed this quite a bit... Enough to order a second 4 bottles. It's got most of what you're looking for in a Barolo at a value price point.
