Offers up generous fruit along with menthol, spices and hard candy, showing notable intensity while retaining an essentially mid-weight style. Strong, intense and powerful when young, complex and elegant with the ageing.
Total period of ageing is 2 years: 4 months in barriques, period in which the natural malolactic fermentation develops, and 20 months in big casks. Couple of months in stainless steel tanks before the bottling.
The Perbacco is made from parcels all planted in the Barolo region. The average age of the vines is 35 years and the plants per hectare are 4.500. All vineyards are vinified and aged separately until the moment we select the casks/Crus/Vineyards used then for our Barolo Castiglione. 18-28 days of alcoholic fermentation between 28°-35°(82-95°F). It follows the malolactic in stainless steel tank and/or barrique..
