Nebbiolo Langhe Ochetti 2021, Renato Ratti, Piedmonte
A slightly faded ruby red. Fine, delicate and persistent bouquet with characteristic trace scents of strawberry and raspberry. Pleasantly bitterish, velvety, at once elegant and full. The typical sandy soil gives lots of finesse and a very delicate aromas.
Halfway up a hill overlooking the main Barolo valley lies the Abbey of the Annunziata – Our Lady of the Annunciation – a priceless jewel of the 15th Century. Just as the friars of centuries past produced wines from the grapes grown along the hollow below the abbey, the area still produces wines of incomparable quality thanks to the respectful, yet innovative wine-making philosophy of Renato Ratti – a tradition that still lives on today thanks to the passion and commitment of his son Pietro.
Thermo-controlled fermentation at a temperature of 30°C (85°F). Average time of maceration is 7 days. With around one year of aging in oak barrels.
