Ferdinando Principiano Boscareto Barolo 2006
The wine of kings and the king of wines. That’s how Barolo is defined.
My Nebbiolo grapes ripen on two acres of land with over forty year old vines.
Great plant care with natural techniques, major thinning and excellent exposures on the south-west slope of Boscareto, in Serralunga d'Alba, allow to reach full ripeness and to harvest usually in early October.
Without being destemmed, grapes are pressed with feet. Alcoholic fermentation without inoculated yeasts and without sulfur ranges from 40 to 90 days depending on the year.
Ageing takes place for 36 months in 30 hectolitres oak barrels and then in about 4,000 bottles produced.
