A great barolo with a lot of elegance, harmony, but also a portion of robustness. Complex aromas and very well integrated tannins!
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's Barolo Brunate impresses with a wide range of aromas. Fruity, berry and balsamic notes are predominant. The powerful, but very well balanced tannins are also typical of this vineyard. This wine has great density and balance with a long finish.
The grape harvest takes place during the month of October and after a careful selection the grapes are picked by hand. After destemming and light pressing, they are then fermented in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank . The Barolo is then expanded for 24 months. Of these, 12 months in large oak barrels and then a further 12 months in barriques. At the end there is a 12 month bottle storage before the wine is then put on the market. A great Barolo that is now ready to drink 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 tradition that spans generations, but has steadily developed 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 his father Giacomo in the late 1990s.
The Saglietti winery is idyllically located in a small hamlet, Bricco del Dente, which belongs to the Barolo municipality of La Morra . Flavio Saglietti cultivates eleven hectares of land there, which is planted with native grape varieties. Here the Nebbiolo dominates, but as is usual in the Barolo area, Dolcetto and Barbera wines are also produced.
The figurehead of the artisanal winery are the outstanding Barolo single-site 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 prestigious locations.
Flavio Saglietti produces his wines in a traditional style in wooden barrels , but also uses the barrique barrel for aging in certain vintages. The winery has been running organic viticulture since Flavio took over the leadership.
The Saglietti winery was presented in the March 2020 issue of Vinum wine magazine with its Barolo Cerequio. Babarolo is pleased to be able to offer you the excellent Barolo single-site wines as the only dealer in Germany.
