The Cru Brunate is located on the eastern vineyard side of the municipality of La Morra, called Bricco del Dente, which at 553m above sea level is the highest vineyard in this area.

Flavio Saglietti Barolo Brunate 2016 DOCG impresses with a wide range of aromas. Complex berry and balsamic notes are predominant. Polished tannins and a pleasant freshness of tannins on the palate are just as impressive as the balance, elegance and harmony of this wine. Great expansion potential! The 2016 Barolo vintage is a vintage of the century, and the Saglietti Brunate wines are Baroli in a class of their own!

The harvest takes place during the month of October and after a careful selection, the grapes are harvested by hand. After destemming and light pressing, they were then fermented in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank. After that, the Barolo is aged for 24 months. 12 months in large oak barrels and then another 12 months in barriques. Finally, a 12-month bottle storage follows before the wine is sold. A great Barolo, ready to drink now and for the next 20+ years. A wonderful accompaniment to game, roasts, red meat and mature cheese.

THE PRODUCER: FLAVIO SAGLIETTI

The small Saglietti winery does not have a generation-long tradition, but has continued to develop since it was founded and is now one of the insider tips in La Morra. The winery is now run by Flavio, who joined the company founded by father Giacomo in the late 90's.

The Saglietti winery is idyllically situated in a small hamlet, Bricco del Dente, which belongs to the Barolo municipality of La Morra. Flavio Saglietti farms 11 hectares of land there, which is planted with native grape varieties. Nebbiolo dominates here, but as is usual in the Barolo area, Dolcetto and Barbera wines are also produced.

The flagship of the artisanal winery are the outstanding Barolo single-vineyard wines of the crus Brunate and Cerequio. These two crus have a legendary reputation among wine connoisseurs and it is rather unusual for a small winery to Own plots in these renowned locations.

Flavio Saglietti produces his wines in a traditional style in wooden barrels, but also uses barrique barrels for certain vintages. The winery has been running organic viticulture since Flavio took over the management.

The Saglietti winery was featured in the March 2020 issue of the Vinum wine magazine with its Barolo Cerequio. Babarolo is pleased to be the only retailer in Germany to be able to offer you the excellent Barolo single-vineyard wines.
