An excellent single vineyard wine with finesse, complexity and a diverse range of aromas.
The Nebbiolo grapes from which the La Vedetta Barbaresco Ca' Grossa 2017 DOCG are pressed come from the vineyard of the same name, which is the heart of the Nebbiolo production of the winery. Due to its southeast orientation and its soil composition, limestone with a large proportion of sandstone, this cru offers the best conditions for the Nebbiolo grape variety. Not to mention the microclimate. The proximity to the Tanaro river and the presence of trees and hazelnut groves guarantee a particular acidity of the grapes, which expresses a marked freshness and juiciness in the wines.
The Nebbiolo grapes are hand-picked during October and then the grapes are destemmed and lightly pressed. The following fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and then aging in oak barrels over a period of almost 2 years. After a bottle storage, the Barbaresco is finally on the market.
The typicality of this Barbaresco vineyard wine is reflected in the very delicate aroma with a hint of red fruits, spices and violets. On the palate, the fine-meshed tannin is pleasantly present and enveloping. This Barbaresco impresses with its finesse, complexity and balance with great development potential. Goes very well with lamb, white meat and mature cheeses. The wine is ready to drink immediately and for the next 20 years.
The producer: La Vedetta
La Vedetta is located just outside the town of Alba in the Barbaresco growing area. This area is breathtakingly beautiful, with steep hills, rolling vineyards and an amphitheater-like grandeur.
The couple who runs the winery, Swantje and Marco, call this beautiful place their home. They inherited the Marcos family's vineyards with the aim of producing sustainable, high quality wines that express the uniqueness of this growing area.
German-born Swantje and Piedmont-born Marco share their funny and sweet stories on social media on Instagram.
