Livia Fontana - Barolo DOCG Bussia Riserva



Grape variety : Nebbiolo

Production area: Monforte d'Alba, South-West exposure 300 masl

Area: about half a hectare

Harvest: manual in baskets with selection of the bunches around mid-October.

Vinification: selection of the grapes on a vibrating table, soft pressing, fermentation in steel tanks at a controlled temperature with frequent pumping over and délestages. Maceration of about 20 days.

Refinement: at least 30 months in traditional oak barrels and then in bottles in the underground cellar with controlled temperature and humidity until sale.

Organoleptic characteristics: the color is an intense red with shades from ruby ​​to garnet. The bouquet is complex with hints reminiscent of cinchona and cocoa beans, juniper and roasted coffee. The wine envelops and fills the palate thanks to a full and decisive tannin. A soft and elegant finish increases the pleasure of drinking with a persistence that never ends.

Food pairings: the wine has body and structure with a well-present tannin, ideal with tasty dishes with clear and evident succulence such as: roast wild boar loin; beef diaphragm with ponzu and sesame sauce with kale; rib eye steak in red wine; braised in barolo.

Service: 16°-18° C.

Conservation: keep the bottles lying down in rooms with a possibly constant temperature. It is a ready-to-drink wine and can be kept in the cellar for 15-20 years.

Available formats: 0.75L / 1.5L / 3L
