Barolo di Serralunga, Principiano Ferdinando

ORGANIC / NO ADDED SULPHITES
A delicate and elegant Barolo for a great price. Nebbiolo grapes ripen 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 24 months in 20 and 40 hectolitres barrels. This vibrant Barolo 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.

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.

Origin: Piemonte, Italy
Vintage: 2014
Grape variety: Nebbiolo
Food pairing: Aged cheese, game, red meat stew, roasted and grilled meats 
Bottle size: 75cl

Vintage: 2017
Grape variety: Gamay
Food pairing: Very versatile food wine
Bottle size: 75cl
ABV: 12.5%

Located in the hamlet of Le Breuil in the deep south of Beaujolais terres dorées, Domaine Dupeuble has been making wines from Gamay since 1512. Damien Dupeuble runs the 42 hectare domaine today, with the whole family involved in either the viticulture, winemaking or commercialisation of their wines. While much of this part of Beaujolais is dominated by negocients and large-scale producers churning out sub-standard nouveau, Dupeuble is of the quality-driven persuasion more commonly found in the crus to the north. Viticulture on the south-facing 50-100 year old vines is lutte raisonée and every grape here is manually harvested, with only wild yeasts used and no chaptalisation or filtration. The result is wines of succulent, vibrant red fruit with wonderful clarity and purity.

In 1920, the Viano family arrived in California from their native Piedmont and purchased a vineyard just outside the small town of Martinez, in what is now Contra Costa County AVA. The site they bought had been planted in 1888 and they became one of fifteen wineries that slaked the thirst of San Francisco in a thriving winemaking community.
Today, Viano is the only winery left in these parts, refusing to bow to the urbanisation that has consumed the entire Bay Area and driven real estate prices sky high. Some of their vineyards are the original 1888 plantings, others are more recent, but all of them are dry farmed with no recourse to chemical fertilisers or pesticides. Their 25 hectares of beautiful hillside vineyards really are an oasis in this part of California and the wines that brothers John and David produce represent some of the best value in the U.S.A.
