WINE: "Seghesio's Barolo is concentrated, big and muscular with pure Nebbiolo aromas, cassis, black cherry, licorice and spicy oak on the nose. Clean, with fresh, soft tannins." -Importer VINIFICATION AND AGEING: "Maceration on the skins in steel rotary fermentors for 5-8 days, ageing in French oak barriques and tonneaux for 24 months. The wine is cellared in the bottle for 12 months before release." -Importer WINERY: "Aldo and Riccardo focus on terroir, grape variety and ripening times in order to interpret the vintage to best effect, ensuring quality and typicity." "Brothers Aldo and Riccardo Seghesio began bottling their wine from their ten-hectares in the La Villa cru in the township of Monforte in 1988. Seghesio's Barolo is concentrated, big and muscular with pure Nebbiolo aromas and velvety texture. The estate is no-longer the secret of those in-the-know, ever since the 2004 vintage received 95 points from the Wine Spectator." -Imorter [+]
