A sophisticated and aromatic Barbera wine by Cordero Montezemolo

The estate

Located in the village of La Morra, the Cordero Di Montezemolo estate is an iconic reference in the Langhe wine area, in the north of Piedmont in Italy.

The vineyard

Cordero Di Montezemolo watches over a vineyard comprised of nearly 51 hectares, situated in the exceptional terroirs of the Barolo appellation. The estate's wines are renowned well beyond the Italian borders for their complexity, power and great ageing potential.

The wine

Cordero di Montezemolo's Barbera d'Alba 2020 is made from vineyards located between La Morra, Alba and the Roero region. The vines are planted on a patchwork of soils and enjoy an array of altitudes and sun exposures. The soil is composed of silty clay, sand and trace elements.

The vinification and ageing

Hand-picked at the end of September, the grapes are fermented and macerated in stainless steel tanks for about 8 to 10 days. Following the racking process, malolactic fermentation is carried out in different-sized barrels from France and Slavonia. The wine is aged for 5 to 6 months in barrels, followed by a further few months of bottle ageing before the wine is put on the market.

The blend

This Cordero di Montezemolo Barbera d'Alba 2020 is a 100% Barbera.

The tasting

Storage

This Barbera d'Alba wine can be kept in the cellar until at least 2030 in order to reveal its full aromatic range.
