Marziano Abbona Barbaresco 2010
One of the most prestigious and well-known wines of the Langhe, Barbaresco is made using nebbiolo grapes cultivated northeast of the city of Alba, adjacent to the Tanaro River. Powerful and never too forward, it is an important and harmonious wine, polished and sophisticated.
FIRST YEAR OF PRODUCTION: 1996
WINEMAKING: Crushing-destemming is followed by spontaneous alcoholic fermentation using indigenous yeasts. It is left in contact with the skins in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, followed by dry racking and transfer to oak barrels.
MALOLACTIC FERMENTATION: Carried out entirely in barrels immediately after alcoholic fermentation.
AGING: In barrels for a long period, followed by assemblage in stainless steel, filtration, and bottling. Rests in the bottle at a constant temperature of 14° C (57° F) for several months before release.
TASTING NOTES: With a garnet red color and ruby reflections that tend towards orange as it ages, this is a soft and sophisticated wine with delicate tannins, never too forward or aggressive. The aromas carry notes of mature, red fruit and spices. The barely perceptible acidity gives it a touch of freshness. Serve at 18° C (64° F) after bringing the bottle to room temperature for 24 hours before drinking.
