A rich and powerful wine which is velvety on the palate with the distinct bouquet with classic aromas of rose petals and tar and high levels of plummy fruit.. Before release Neirano Barolo spends three years in large oak ‘botti’ and a further period in bottle to allow the tannins to soften and the wine to develop.
Cantine Neirano is a small DOCG estate, founded in 1911 by Antonio Sperone beginning with fortified wines and vermouth in a small cellar just outside Turin. The Tenute Neirano Estate began as an offshoot of Sperone in 1983 to focus on high end wines in Piemonte. They purchased a 25 hectare property in the heart of Monforte d'Alba, a region famous for its compressed sandstone soils, crafting intense, structured wines with great power and longevity. It is there, in an ancient 17th century villa, that this fine Barolo is produced. It spent 3 years in large format Slovenian oak and 1 year in bottle before leaving the winery for export.
