Autin d’Madama Langhe Nebbiolo DOC – Simone Scaletta

The vinification starts with the maceration on the skins for approximately 6 days in rotary fermentors with temperature control. The grapes are then pressed off the skins and the alcoholic fermentation is completed in steel tanks in about 15 days. The wine is now put into second (40%) and third phase (60%) French barriques in which the malolactic fermentation takes place maintaining the 20° temperature for 2 months. After this fermentation, the wine stands for other 6 months. This refining process in wood ends when the wine is put into big barrels for further 4 months. The wine remains in barrique for a total of 12 months and is then put into stainless steel tanks to settle and then to be bottled without filtration and fining. Before selling, the wine stands in the bottles for 3 months.

Tasting characteristics: intense ruby color, with grenadine reflections, it opens to the nose fresh aromas of wild roses and red fruits. It has a generous body, but is melted into delicate velvet notes which balance the typical complexity of this vine through a nice feeling of freshness and a good persistence. The refining into the bottle gives to this product complexity and pleasantness for the further next ten years.
