Tasting Notes

Vibrant aromas of black cherries, perfumed violets, warm spices and game. On the palate the wine has great structure and shows complex rich fruit, truffle and a touch of mocha and fine ripe tannins. Long, spicy finish and refreshing acidity.

Producer details

Araldica is Piemonte's largest and most progressive co-operative yet retains a small, family run company feel, thanks to the inspired guidance of winemaker/manager Claudio Manera (whose father Livio was the co-op's first winemaker in the fifties) and his wife Lella, also a winemaker and in charge of Quality Control. 80% of production is bottled (an extraordinarily high percentage for a large co-operative) at the company's headquarters in the Monferrato hills, home of the old cellars and a new winery, operating since September 2000.

In the vineyard

Araldica have 9 member growers with vineyards in Barbaresco, covering 8 hectares in the communes of Treiso and Neive. soil is clay/chalk and training on low guyot trellis, plant density 4,000 vines/ha. Manual harvest takes place in early October, yield 6 to 7 T/ha.

In the winery

Nebbiolo grapes are hand-harvested, de-stemmed and then crushed to four small fermenters, for 12 days, with daily pumping-over. This ensures good colour and flavour extraction, but avoids over extraction of the abundant Nebbiolo tannins. The wine is drained off at dryness and the skins transferred to a small press. After pressing the wine is settled for two days, and then racked to Slavonian oak botte and barrique, where it is aged for 2 years. It is then racked from oak and gently natural egg white fined. Another 6 months maturation in bottle is completed before release.

Food Recommendations

Excellent with fillet of beef or spring lamb.
