Spontaneous fermentation carried out by indigenous yeasts for about 12 days in concrete tanks, controlled temperature (22 – 25 C initially, 29-30 at the end ), followed by submerged cup maceration for 40 – 60 days, stable temperature 29 C. After the racking off, the malolactic fermentation starts, and it lasts about 15 days at 22 C. Ageing: 4 years in Slavonian oak casks (4500L) with a further refining in bottle for 6 mounths.
The cru orginated around 13 millon years ago due to erosion of the overlying terrain. As a result its composition differs slightly from the other lanhe lands. Liste essentially acquired acompletion of macro and micro elements that give the future wine an unequalled complexity and longevity. Highly visible from the curves of the secondary road that rises from Barolo towards the old Castello della Volta, the vineyards of this renowed cru cover around 6.75 hectares, with a southern exposureand an altitude that varies from 270 to 330 meters above sea level.
We don’t want to recommend a “perfect” food – wine pairing, because everyone has personal ideas and tastes. We know better who you should have this wine with, anyone!
