2013 Pelissero Barbaresco Vanotu image

 



Site: the Cascina Vanotu extends over three Barbaresco districts: Treiso, Barbaresco (where we also own a small colonic house) and Neive.



Variety: Nebbiolo 100%



Exposure: south



Altitude: about 350 m



Year of planting: 1964



Breeding form: gujot



Density of plants per hectare: 4000



First and unique year of production: 1960



Soil: of medium texture with a rich calcareous component suitable for producing very aromatic and varietal wines.



Characteristics: Vanotu is the diminutive in Piedmontese dialect of Giovanni, Giorgio's grandfather and previous owner of this vineyard. Therefore it is a part of our winery to which we are very fond of. Thanks to the particular climate and exposure of this vineyard we can obtain even in poor vintages great character and personality wines.



Technical notes: produced through modern and innovative methods (controlled temperatures, mechanical automatic timed and planned punching) trying to lead into the bottle the maximum exaltation of the varietal characteristics of Nebbiolo grapes. Aged for 20/22 months in barriques (80% of them are new) then 9 months in bottles we aim at creating concentration, fruit, soft tannic complexity. Our will is to make an innovative wine trying to maintain and exalt the great qualities of Nebbiolo. The first bottled vintage was in 1960.



Tasting sheet: intense wide ruby colour, it expresses fruity notes of raspberry and cherry matched and well harmonized with persuasive woody notes of vanilla. The aromatic frame besides the typical notes of rose completes with notes of sage, mint, thyme, camomile constant over the years: a real trademark for this soil. In the mouth it is velvety ample and fills up with sweet and lasting tannins. The great polyphenolic structure of Nebbiolo and the right acid tannic balance of this wine are synonyms of long lasting wine.
