The vineyard this cru comes from stretches over the hillside, magnificently exposed to the midday sun, in the municipal district of Novello. From time immemorial, this wine-growing area has been classified by Novello producers as one of the most ideally suited to the cultivation of the Nebbiolo cultivar. Barolo Riserva matures in big, traditional Slavonian oak barrels for 36 months and is followed by further ageing in the bottle – as long as possible – before release. A long maceration using the submerged-cap method is the basis to produce our Riserva in the tradition of the great masters of Barolo.
To the eye, it expresses a rich chromatic note of fresh and compelling vinosity. The bouquet has an overtone of greenness with hints of mountain hay and autumn leaves. Nuances of fresh fruit, small fruit, tobacco and sweet spices mingle to give it a beautiful complexity. A well-structured, very balanced wine in its acidity and tannicity. With a character greatly enhanced by its maceration, it is harmonious in its freshness and fineness, and has a great potential for ageing.
