Cascina Adelaide, Barolo, DOCG, Fossati, Piedmont, Italy, 2016

£75.00

Amabile Droco is acting out his lifelong dream by now owning an old farmhouse and vineyard in the heart of Barolo. He was fascinated by Barolo and wanted to demonstrate not only the fascinating qualities that the wine can create in the glass, but also the diversity of the terroir within the Barolo DOCG. So he has set out to acquire a vineyard in each of the ten Barolo ‘crus’. He currently owns eight, with the goal of completing his dream when the right sites become available.

Situated on a privately owned vineyard at “Fossati”, in La Morra on a South, South East facing slope at an altitude of 400 metres. Soils consist of tortonian, limestone and blue clay, with vineys trained Guyot grown on a counter trellis system. With an average planting density of 5000 vines per hectare, yield is reduced with the use of the cluster thinning method.

Dark ruby red colour with rich plum and mulberry fruit, balsamic notes and spice. Combined with elegant tannin this is a truly wonderful wine.
