Tasting Note

The Vigna La Rosa Barolo is harmonious, well-rounded and elegant in taste; its very fine and delicate bouquet is reminiscent of roses and, with the ageing process, tends to acquire a certain earthiness complimented by a velvety mouthfeel.

Winemaking

The wild roses that bloom on the house walls have given their name to this vineyard, which is about 250 metres above sea level in the area of Serralunga d'Alba. Fermentation is carried out in large vats at a controlled temperature, lasting from 15-20 days. The wine is then aged in Slavonian oak casks for at least 2 years. Maturation is bottle for one year helps the wine to define and complete its characteristics

Press

  • Serralunga d'Alba. Cherries, mineral, meat, tannins still very forthright and insistent. Dry finish, some bitter chocolate. Big, long and floral on the finish. (RH) 17.5

    • Richard Hemming
  • Sweet, perfumed flowers, dark cherries and licorice are woven together in this graceful, suprisingly vinous Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

    • Antonio Galloni
  • GOLD MEDAL - International Wine Challenge 2012

    "Aromas of porcini mushrooms and dried roses. Still a little closed but it has a fine structure and a long juicy finish of liquorice and dried fruit."

    • Decanter, September 2012
