Technical notes

Barolo La Rosa is produced from the most painstaking selections carried out in vineyard.

Vinification: one week fermentation in stainless steel tanks; after that, submerged cap maturation of about 20 days at room temperature, followed buy racking in barrels.

Ageing: 3 years in large casks (oak from Slavonia and the centre of France) prior to bottling and a further period of maturations of 12 months.

Pairings

Ideal with big red meat dishes and medium or mature cheeses, it can also make for pleasant after-dinner company.

Vintage

Due to the prolongation of the winter, the vegetative cycle started later than average. The spring was temperate with some rainfalls during the month of May that hadn’t caused any damages to the vines. The summer was hot and dry, as well as the month of September where hot temperatures created ideal conditions for a perfect maturation of the grape.
