Fruit of the most genuine historical interpretation, Barolo PORTA ROSSA is created from grapes grown in historical vineyards in the districts of Serralunga and Perno. The grey compact marl of the soil and blue clay with sand layers afford strength and structure to the wine and bring it into harmony combining elegance and bouquet. Bricco Ambrogio, a vineyard in Roddi, gives its name to the homonymous "cru" wine.
A ten-day fermentation of the must in contact with the cluster takes place in controlled temperature vats. The extraction of colour occurs from several juice pump overs. The wine is racked and put into Slavonian oak barrels where it evolves and ages under strict control for at least two years.
Brilliant ruby red colour tending to orange with age. Ethereal and complex aroma, rather fruity, evolving into spicy tones. Full-bodied and dry tannins suggest an elegant and continuous mouth-feel. This is a wine with a strong personality.
