Gianfranco Bovio Arborina Barolo DOCG 2016 Red Wine

Piedmont, Italy

95 pts. James Suckling, Top 100 Wines of Piedmont 2016:

"A tight, complex red with mineral, pumice, cedar and dried-strawberry aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to full-bodied with tight, chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Extremely long and tannic, yet polished. Drink after 2023 and onwards."

94 pts. Wine Advocate:

"The panoramic views from Arborina extend over most of the Barolo appellation with rolling hills and snowcapped Alps. The vines enjoy a sun-drenched position for most of the day. The Bovio 2016 Barolo Arborina draws its fruit from 45-year-old vines and shows extra intensity and definition that comes in part thanks to the advanced age of the plants. However, the wine also magically reflects the elegance of the site with delicate berry nuances followed by licorice, aniseed and crushed stone. Give this release of 3,300-bottles (at least) another five years of cellar aging." - Monica Larner, 2020

FROM THE WINERY

Vineyard: Arborina
Location: La Morra
Exposition: South - East
Vine Variety: Nebbiolo 100%

Vinification and refining:
Fermentation and maceration go on for about 10 days in temperature- controlled tanks, using native yeasts. Afterwards, “submerged cap fermentation” follows. In this special type of fermentation the grape skins are kept in contact with the must, for about 3 to 4 weeks’ time. The wine is eventually transferred into large wood barrels.

Tasting notes:
Ruby red colour with brick-like hues. This wine is fresh to the nose, with hints of vanilla and nut. The palate is soft, featuring a sweet traditional tannin, elegant and persistent.
Serving Temperature: 16-17 degrees C
