Our Barolo DOCG Gattera is the fruit of the precious Gattera terroir, inside La Morra area.
The vineyards, first planted in 1960, are entirely exposed South, at 275 m above sea level. The Gattera terroir is composed by two different types of soil: the former, mostly calcareous, gives roundness and elegance to the wine; the latter, mostly sandy, makes the wine structured and enduring.
Harvest starts at the beginning of October, carried out by hand. The selected grapes are left fermenting with BRL97 Barolo yeasts for 10 days in stainless steel tanks, then rest for 6 month. Finally, the wine is left to age in large 2000 l Allier oak barrels for 18 months. The minimum aging period in bottle before tasting is 6 months.
Food pairing: great with braised, red meat and selections of mature and blue cheese.
