Barolo Bricco San Pietro DOCG
Barolo Bricco San Pietro DOCG is a red DOC wine, produced in Monforte d’Alba, made of 100% Nebbiolo grapes from our own vineyards
The vineyard covers a surface of 1.2 hectares, at about 440/470 metres above sea level, facing south-east; the soil is clayey calcareous. The vines are vertically trellised, pruned the ‘Guyot’ way and the density is of 5000 plants per hectare, planted in 1997/1998. The average final production is of about 5000/7000 0.75lt bottles.
Vinification begins after a manual harvest in crates with immediate stalk removal, followed by four pump overs a day for the first week and two pump overs a day during the second week. Maceration lasts 15/18 days.
After the racking, decantering and the malolactic fermentation have occurred, the wine is then put to stand in Slavonian oak barrels for 30 months. Bottling takes place in the month of August.
Barolo Bricco San Pietro DOCG is a wine suitable for ageing (eight/ ten years). It should be served at a temperature between sixteen and eighteen degrees, and is ideally paired with meat, game, cheese and polenta.
