Bava Barolo Scarrone
Ample and complex wine, very elegant with its distinct garnet colour and its scents of tobacco, rose and violet that continue to refine further over time. Enveloping palate with sweet tannins, typical of the Castiglione Cru, and in particular that from Scarrone. Nicely ripened grapes fermented in wooden barrels, specifically built from oak trees from the Fontainebleau forests, 20-day-long maceration and pump-over during the first period. Malo-lactic fermentation followed by racking into the same fermentation barrels and then into the barriques. From start to finish, this rich Barolo ages exclusively in wood. SCARRONE, ROCCHE of CASTIGLIONE and PIRA are the three great crus that surround the village of Castiglione Falletto. The BAVA Family has owned since 1989 the only farmhouse in the Scarrone cru with 5 hectares of vineyards surrounding it. Here is the cellar reserved to the production and aging of their own estate Barolo. It comes from the estate vineyards in Castiglione Falletto, in the heart of the Scarrone Cru, where the Bava Family has re-built the old farmhouse with a barrique cellar for the first fermentation of Nebbiolo. The long maceration of pure Nebbiolo is an example of respect for the tradition and allows to obtain remarkably full-bodied and persistent wines. Gentle, finely aged, non-aggressive in its structure – a wine of character. In the vintages of greatest structure, it is recommended not to uncork it right away, and have some patience to drink it.
