Barbaresco Corsini red Italian red wine. Deep, intense ruby colour with noticeable tawny highlights. This is a wine packed with vibrant aromas of black cherries, violets and game. On the palate the wine has great structure and shows complex rich fruit, truffle and game flavours and ripe Nebbiolo tannins. Long, spicy finish.
13.5% vol, case 6x75cl, grapes Nebbiolo 100%
Made from Nebbiolo grapes from around the town of Barbaresco - covering all three communes of Treiso, Neive and Barbaresco. Soils are a mixture of clay and chalk, and vines are trained on low guyot trellis, with a plant density of 4,000 vines/ha. Manual harvest takes place in early October, yield 6 to 7 T/ha. Nebbiolo grapes are hand-harvested, de-stemmed and then crushed into small fermenters, for around 12 days, with daily pumping-over. This ensures good colour and flavour extraction, but avoids over extraction of the abundant Nebbiolo tannins. The wine is drained off at dryness and the skins transferred to a small press. After pressing the wine is settled for two days, and then racked to Slavonian oak botte and barrique, where it is aged for 2 years. Another 6 months maturation in bottle is completed before release.
