This was the first single vineyard Barolo produced by Amalia Cascina in Langa in 2010, from a selection of grapes from the prestigious Le Coste vineyard in Monforte d’Alba.

Characteristics:

Appellation: Barolo Docg
Municipality: Monforte d’Alba
Grape: 100% Nebbiolo
Surface area: 1 ha in the Le Coste area of Monforte d’Alba.
Vineyards: Le Coste di Monforte: east/south-easterly exposure, at an average altitude of 400 metres above sea level, the last hills of Barolo towards Serralunga. The soils consist of sandy Sant’Agata fossil marls from the Tortonian period.
Year planted: 1982
Vine training system: Guyot
Vine density: 5000 plants/ha
Yield: 6.0 tonnes/ha

Vinification: The grapes are harvested by hand into crates and sent immediately to be vinified. After destemming-crushing and the start of fermentation, floating cap maceration begins, with daily pumping over for about 20 days. After the first racking necessary for the decanting of the young wine, malo-lactic fermentation takes place. The wine then spends 32 months resting in medium-sized (26 hl) French oak barrels. This is followed by bottle ageing.
