Small winery, great location, great Barolo! A Barolo in a class of its own at a low price! Fine tannin structure, ripe fruit, balanced, lasting, rich, long finish.
The Margheria vineyard is one of the most renowned locations in the municipality of Serralunga D'Alba. The plot of the winery is barely a hectare and is located in a south-westerly position at 300m above sea level. The wines from this location are characterized by great elegance and harmony and have a long aging potential. This wine is ready to drink immediately, but it will develop its great potential over the next 15+ years. The salient features of this wine are, besides elegance and harmony, the intense fruity and mineral notes and the long-lasting finish.
The grapes are picked by hand in October and carefully selected for further processing. Then fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks over a period of 12-15 days. The subsequent maturation of the wine takes place first for a short time in stainless steel tanks and then in large oak barrels and lasts at least 30 months. In addition, the bottle is stored for one year before the Barolo goes on sale.
This Barolo goes perfectly with game, roasts and red meat. The winery does not use herbicides and pesticides in the vineyard, and no additives are used in the winemaking process.
THE PRODUCER: FRANCO BOASSO
The Gabutti winery was founded in the early 1970s when the Boasso family began to press their own wine from the grapes in their vineyards. The name Gabutti because one of the most famous Barolo vineyards in the area is called that, and the family also owns a plot there.
The family business is now run by Franco Boasso and his son Ezio. These friendly winemakers are very closely linked to the history and tradition of the Langhe and enjoy a high reputation in the region. On 7 hectares of vineyards, they produce almost 32,000 bottles of wine annually. These include 3 different Barolo single-site wines, but also Barbera, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo and Roero Arneis wines.
