La Volta Barolo DOCG riserva

the grapes coming from the vineyard of the same name, are vinified with a submerged cap, to encourage greater extraction in particular during the first days of fermentation. Depending on the year, the duration of the maceration varies from 14 to 21 days. The subsequent malo-lactic fermentation takes place in steel containers, immediately after the end of the alcoholic fermentation, keeping the temperature at a temperature of 20 ° C stable and controlled. The wine remains on its fine lees for a period of up to 4 months. In years that are particularly suited to long aging, the wine is aged in conical vats for a period of 46 months, followed by a brief period of 3 months in steel and a further 12 months of aging in bottle. The label is Barolo Riserva La Volta. The wine has hints of ripe fruit and evolutive notes.
