237 AED
Description:

WINEMAKING: The harvested grapes get destalked and soft-pressed. After that, we place them in steel vinificator machines for a cold maceration. The process, which lasts about 36/40 hours, favours the maximal extraction from the fruit of aromas, colour and structure. Then the Albarone ages for a total of 24 months in 1000 lt. French oak barrels. Before putting it on the market, the wine stays in the bottle in our cellar at a controlled temperature (12°C) for 12 months. TASTING NOTES: In the glass the Albarone amazes already for its intense violet colour. In the nose it is a spectacle of aromas of ripe cherry, plum, berries and spices with balsamic note. On the palate it expresses all its power: it is extremely pulpy, tannic but smooth and it has an extraordinary concentration of fruit. It is very long, with a sweetness that reveals a taste of blueberry and ripe plum. This wine begins to express its real complexity after 5-6 years of refinement in the bottle. If stored at a constant temperature (12°-14°C/53°-57°F) it can be tasted also after 25 years. FOOD PAIRING: Albarone pairs perfectly with very structured meat dishes, like pork cheek in red wine sauce, or veal stew. Exceptional is the pairing with pappardelle with venison and chestnuts sauce. With the refinement it is very interesting with desserts, like the chocolate pie with melting heart or the chocolate chestnuts pie.
