Barolo - 2015 - Cascina Adelaide - DOCG - Piedmont - Italy
Amabile Droco is acting out his lifelong dream by now owning an old farmhouse and vineyard in the heart of Barolo. He was fascinated by Barolo and wanted to demonstrate not only the fascinating qualities that the wine can create in the glass, but also the diversity of the terroir within the Barolo DOCG.
The land provides the difference, the wine provides the medium. To enhance this communication of intrinsic individuality from each site no herbicides are used on the land and the harvesting and sorting is all done by hand.
Attention to detail is exacting. Native yeasts and minimal sulphur are used in the fermentation too, allowing the resulting wines speak for itself, creating delicious complex formations full of orange skin, plum and tobacco with incredibly vibrant tannins and excellent balancing acidity.
