2008 is a vintage that will fill you with big emotions. The cool September of that year ensured this Barolo extraordinary vegetable notes and notable acidity, guaranteeing increased ageing potential. After an almost fruity and immediate vintage like 2007, we are returning to a more classic Nebbiolo with a grand character, distinguished by fantastic tannins that allow us to predict extraordinary development over time. It is comparable to the 2004 vintage, although the 2008 production level was lower.
Our Barolo Serralunga 2008 comprises three vineyards located in the municipality of Serralunga d’Alba: Manocino, which guarantees coolness thanks to its north-west exposure while the east of Serra and San Bernardo enhances fragrances and optimal acidity. The terrain is amazing: it alternates clay and stratified marly formations that hold a myriad of micro-elements, which once in the wine characterize the complexity of the Barolo wines of Serralunga d’Alba.
It is a Barolo to keep, appreciating its development, entirely immersed in the uniqueness and refinement of the Serralunga d’Alba terroir.
