Tasting Notes

Dark plum, leather and delicate violet aromas, plus notes of vanilla and spice. A full, firm and ripe red with an elegant and silky texture, giving a good lengthy finish.

Producer details

Araldica is Piemonte's largest and most progressive co-operative yet retains a small, family run company feel, thanks to the inspired guidance of winemaker/manager Claudio Manera (whose father Livio was the co-op's first winemaker in the fifties) and his wife Lella, also a winemaker and in charge of Quality Control. 80% of production is bottled (an extraordinarily high percentage for a large co-operative) at the company's headquarters in the Monferrato hills, home of the old cellars and a new winery, operating since September 2000.

In the vineyard

Grapes are sourced from vineyards in Barolo. Vines are trained on a low Guyot trellis at 4-5,000 vines/ha.

In the winery

The grapes were hand-harvested, de-stemmed and then crushed to small fermenters, for 12 days, with daily pumping-over. The wine was drained off at dryness, and the skins transferred to a small press. After pressing the wine was settled for two days, and then racked to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. After three years maturation in 50hl Slavonian oak casks it was racked from oak and gently fined.

Food Recommendations

Drink with roasted red meats and game.
