Barolo Paesi Tuoi, Terre Da Vino

Barolo Paesi Tuoi, Terre Da Vino

Ref: A103912

Aromatic with tones of cinnamon and berry, medium to full bodied, elegant tannins and a lovely fresh fruit berry finish. 14.0%abv

Barolo is made exclusively with the temperamental Nebbiolo grape that rarely seems to flourish far beyond the villages surrounding Barolo and Barbaresco. Barolo is centred on the eponymous village just south of the town of Alba in Piemonte and is no bigger than the comune of St. Julien in Bordeaux. Alba is particularly famous as the home of Italian truffles. Barolo has been regarded since the mid 19th century as one of Italy's finest wines. Formerly the style of Barolo was very dry and tannic, however, nowadays the tannins are more subdued and the distinctively perfumed nebbiolo fruit is more evident. Paesi Tuoi (literally, Your Countryside) is named after a novel by the local author Cesari Pavese, who wrote in the 1940s and 1950s.

Terre da Vino is very unusual in that it is a winery owned by 14 co-operatives who gave it the task of creaming off the best grapes from the best vineyards to produce top class wines. It was established in 1980 and in 2000 it moved into a purpose built winery in the village of Barolo in the heart of the Langhe.

The wines they sell are of several different types. First where a grower has sufficient grapes the wine is made and sold as if it is a single estate, a policy begun in 1986. Secondly there are a number of growers who produce top class grapes but in very small quantities. These wines are then blended with those from similarly small growers to produce wines that are then commercialised under one of Terre da Vino's brand names. A number of the brands use titles of the novels of Piemonte writers Cesari Pavese and Beppe Fenoglio.

There is a philosophy within Terre da Vino of innovation. So for instance in the face of the rest of the market place they have created a top quality Asti linked to a particular set of vineyards, they are developing Moscato Passito and have long championed the Barbera grape as one of much greater depth and complexity than its previous reputation as an easy drinking everyday wine allowed it. The awards it wins testify the success of the approach of this winery.

Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
