Barolo di Serralunga, Principiano Ferdinando
A delicate and elegant Barolo for a great price. This vibrant Nebbiolo weaves together sensations of violets, bright red berries, forest floor, leather, sweet spices and balsamic notes. The finesse and purity of fruit are supported by silky tannins.
The grapes are grown on 3.5 hectares of land from young vines planted in the valley of Boscareto in Serralunga d'Alba. The focus on the balance of the plant and achieving the ideal ripeness of the grapes allow Ferdinando to harvest in early October. The crushed grapes ferment naturally with their yeasts and without added sulphur for about a month and the ageing takes place for 2 years in 20 and 40 hectolitres barrels.
Being located on the southern fringe of the Barolo zone, the Principiano estate benefits from the biodiversity of the Alta Langhe: the wilderness that lies beyond the dense planting of Nebbiolo vineyards. This helps in maintaining a biodiverse balance in the vineyard. In 2003 he made the decision to move away from the world of consultants and their prescriptions, both in the vineyard and cantina, and since then he’s been rewarded by the purity and drinkability of his wines.
