An elegant barolo with fine, harmonious tannins, has a lot of bite, fullness and depth. A fine wine with a lot of potential!
The Alario winery owns a parcel on the Cru Riva Rocca in the municipality of Verduno. Due to its orientation, this vineyard enjoys intense solar radiation and guarantees high quality grapes. These are picked by hand in mid-October and carefully selected for further processing. After destemming, fermentation takes place in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank.
The maturation then takes place in used barriques and lasts 2 years, g follows from a 1 year bottle maturation. Only then does the Barolo go on sale. This wine has a grumpy red color with violet reflections and a complex aroma profile. It is tightly woven, velvety and shows a youthful bite with a pleasant fullness. In addition, there is a present, fine-grain tannin with a slight spice in the finish.
This Barolo is an excellent accompaniment to roasts, game and red meat dishes. It is ready to drink immediately and for the next 15+ years. The winery does not use herbicides or pesticides in the vineyard and no additives in winemaking.
THE PRODUCER: ALARIO CLAUDIO
The Langhe provides the spectacular backdrop for the 120 year history of the Alario family business. Claudio Alario and his family live in the municipality of Diano d'Alba. They have devoted themselves to viticulture with great passion and add further chapters to the long family history.
In 1988 Claudio, coming straight from the agricultural school, took over his father's business. However, at this point Claudio had already had many years of practical experience behind him. From a very young age, he worked every free minute with his father and grandfather in the vineyard. Working with his grandfather in the vineyard had a particularly strong impact on him.
Today Claudio produces around 40,000 bottles of wine annually on 10 hectares. In addition to the Dolcetto wines, Claudio has also made a name for himself as a Barolo producer. Years ago, he bought additional vineyards in the municipalities of Verduno and Serralunga D'Alba. He presses two excellent Barolo single-site wines from the Nebbiolo grapes. With his son Mattia, who has been working in the company for a few years, the next generation of Alario is ready. The Alario family operates integrated viticulture.
