LE VIGNE Barolo 2007

 

Tasting notes

A wine of exceptional measure, with rich and extremely persistent volume and presence.

The nose has an impressive block of fleshy black fruit, and the sense of darkness is more apparent in the nose than the color.

The wine shows remarkable initial smoothness, good balance and ripe sweetness of the tannin. In the mouth the fruit is soft plum with notes of spices and menthol.

Once again, the "assemblaggio" from diverse Barolo cru gave rise to a great expression of balance and power.

Evolution of the vintage 2007

The year 2007 began with an unusually mild and dry winter, which led to an extremely early bud-break about 20 days sooner than normal.

 

Summer was in the normal range, with temperatures never above average. Even and well-distributed rainfall of average quantity during the growing season contributed to the development of the vines.

During the month of July, a cooler period slowed the advance of phenological ripening.

 

Despite this, by mid-September the grapes were already close to maturity. In summary, it was a normal growing season, just 15-20 days advanced compared to the norm.

 

Harvest: individual for each vineyard; from the 24th September to the 7th October.
