Marziano Abbona "Pressenda" Barolo 2016
VARIETAL/WINEMAKING: 100% Nebbiolo from 46 year old vines. Crushing-destemming followed by maceration in contact with skins for 24 hours. Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation in contact with its skins follows, in stainless steel tanks for 20 days using indigenous yeasts; daily pumpovers. When this process is done, submerged cap maceration is carried out for 40 days and then dry racking, decantation, and transfer to barrels. Aged in barrels of 500 liters for the first 9 months, then transferred to oak barrels of 50 hectoliters for the next 29 months, at the end of which is assemblage and bottling. Rests in the bottle for nine months before release.
TASTING NOTE: Pressenda shows a garnet red color with brick nuances, at the nose the fruity sensations are the protagonists together with ripe fruit in evidence and spicy and licorice notes in the background. The palate is rich, intense, structured with a great balance between power and finesse. The tannin is present and persistent but very delicate and soft. A wine destined to grow further, despite the great start worthy of a remarkable Barolo.
