Description

Made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes, sourced from a single vineyard site – Sori Paradiso. This vineyard is totally owned by the Lanzavecchia family. It is located 300 metres above sea level, and its south, south-west exposure, unique microclimate, and specific soil composition (calcareous marl) make it a perfect source for the production of Serralunga d’Alba Barolo. The yield per hectare in this vineyard site is 45 hectolitres.
The grapes are hand-harvested and soft crushed, and the vinification process is designed to enhance the polyphenolic structure of the grapes. Alcoholic fermentation takes place at 30 degrees Celsius in stainless steel tanks, with about 30 days maceration. The wine is then transferred to large, 50hl Slavonian oak casks where it is aged for 24 months. The resulting wine is a traditional style of Barolo, which shows favourably the distinctive characteristics of the Serralunga cru.

Alcohol content: 14% alc./vol.

Tasting Note

Our tasting note: Ruby red colour with distinct garnet tinges. Deep and intense, with classic notes of cherry cordial, dark raspberry, and licorice with notes of roses, tobacco, and truffle. On the palate the tannins are firm and evolving with a persistent and elegant finish. Will benefit from decanting.

Menu matches: Will pair with meat dishes, particularly game and braised meat dishes like Osso Buco.

About the Grape

Nebbiolo: Distinguished red-wine grape, native to Piedmont; the only grape behind Barolo DOCG and Barbaresco DOCG. Since it needs a long time to ripen, vines grown on select hillside (south-facing) sites generally produce the best wines. These have maximum aromatic complexity, fullness of flavour, and substantial tannins, which explains why Barolo is called the "King of Wine - Wine of Kings". There are actually three principle clones of Nebbiolo -- Lampia, Michet, and Rosé -- and in other parts of Italy Nebbiolo may be known as Spanna, Picutener, or Chiavennasca. Nebbiolo is grown in other parts of the world but we haven't yet come across a version that can match the potential of the grape grown in Piedmont or Lombardy.

Villadoria

Over the years, the Lanzavecchia family, winemakers for four generations, has witnessed the evolution of an area which has its most precious treasure in wine. The Serralunga d'Alba hills are the ideal location for the cultivation of the native vines at the origin of Piedmont's most prestigious wines. It is in this invaluable land that Villadoria is located on the Cappallotto Estate: over 20 hectares in the heart of the Langhe, mostly devoted to grape growing.
The Lanzavecchia family believe in the idea of evolution of tradition in all its aspects. Being abreast of the times means applying the most modern technology to the concept of traditional production which takes meticulous care with every stage of the process, from cultivation of the vineyard to distribution of the finished product.
