Description

Barolo DOCG del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba by Tenuta Cucco is made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes, grown in the Vughera area, cru of Serralunga. It is a traditional Barolo with a fresh and tart component.
Grapes are entirely handpicked, destemmed and pressed, then left to ferment for about 10 days in vats at a temperature of 18-26 °C. Submerged cap maceration for the following 8-10 days and, once finished the fermentation and maceration the drawing-off process takes place followed by a few pourings in the next days. Before transferring the wine to the ageing area, it undertakes a malolactic fermentation. In order to soften the marked youthful exuberance, the wine is left to age for 24 months in traditional 25-hectolitre barrels where the maturing process brings out its elegance. It then sits in bottles for 12 months before being sold.

TASTING NOTES

Barolo DOCG del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba presents a classic bouquet coming from the vine variety and the soil: hints of withered rose, undergrowth, prunes, liquorice and spices. A bright ruby red colour with an orange rim, fresh wine with a tart component and tannins sustaining a good structure. The aromas are elegant, with a good intensity. The fruit is sweet, with more evolved sensations echoing tobacco and dried herbs. We suggest to serve it at a temperature of 16-18 °C.

FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS

Its full-bodied flavour makes it ideal for red meats and feathered game, particularly when braised.

Winery

Tenuta Cucco

Tenuta Cucco is a Piedmontese winery located in Serralunga d’Alba, at the roots of the renowned XIV century castle that dominates the whole Langhe area. Its name refers to the peack, called "cucco", which in local dialect indicates the top of the hill where there is the oldest vineyard, Vigna Cucco, inside Cerrati Cru.
