Barolo DOCG Roggeri

Region: Piemonte

Sub-region: La Morra


A favourable hillside positioning facing south-east, with an ideal combination of rare spring frosts, mixed clay-calcareous soil and good drainage. Planted at 300 m.asl. 4,000 vines per ha., yielding 40 hl./ha.

The grapes are guyot-trained. An ideal method as it separates every branch. Only one bunch of grapes is allowed to grow per branch, and as the bunches do not touch, every grape is perfectly exposed to wind and sun. Vines are 30 years old on average. 3,800 vines per ha., yielding 45 hl./ha.


Hand-harvested. The grapes are collected in slatted fruit-boxes and pressed immediately after. Traditionally macerated for 18 days at 30ºC in vats of glass-lined cement. The wine is then aged for 12 - 15 months in French oak barriques, then 15 - 18 months in large Slavonian oak.
