Description

2016 Vintage is available by the bottle at the LCBO in the Vintages section, or by the case through Stem Wine Group - call the office for more info. 416-548-8824.  2016 is among the best vintages of this century: balance, freshness and sweet fruit concentration are the benchmark of this vintage. The winter has been mild, with low level of rainfall during the months of January and February. Starting from the end of February 2016, the temperatures finally dropped and remained low until the end of March. This late winter led to a delay of about 10 days in the bud breaking. The spring has been rainy and mild, which resulted in good conditions for the vines. During the summer, the temperature trend has been steady without any particular heat peaks. There has only been a couple of hot weeks in July, with temperatures hovering above 30° C but never exceeding 35°C. In particular, the climate trend has been determined by remarkable temperature variations between days and nights during the last part of the growing season.

Aroma

Violet, rose petals and white pepper rise from the glass. An elegant Barolo, Dagromis.

Taste

A pleasant freshness to the palate with juicy red orange and grapefruit notes. Fragrant, medium in body and well balanced. An initial dry sensation from the oak, that softens with time. Noticeable tannins, yet fine. About to bloom, its harmonious complexity foretells a promising ageing potential.

Vinification

The grapes, coming from the single vineyards, separately undergo fermentation, maceration and ageing in oak for 12 months.

Aging

They are then blended and further aged in oak for another 18 months.
