Renzo Seghesio Barolo Ginestra (750ml)
The Seghesio family has been dedicating its experience, knowledge and craft to producing and refining premium red wines in village of Monforte d’Alba for more than one century. Renzo Seghesio has carefully selected and acquired unique terroirs dedicated to the production of his wines.
The terroir of La Cascina Pajana is in the vey middle of historical crus for the production of Barolo. Situated at a bifurcation of the Ginestra hilltop, with a South East and South West exposition, it encompasses both sides of the hill and Renzo Seghesio produces his two top Barolo crus Barolo Ginestra (South-West vineyard) and the Barolo Vigna Pajana (South-east Vineyard) using the grapes from the upper part of the estate, where the Nebbiolos are planted. The Cascina Pajana sets itself apart in the broader landscape of the crus Ginestra for the production of structured, complex wines, together with a slightly cooler exposition.
Barolo Ginestra is intense, ethereal but full and robust, characterized by a garnet red color with orange reflections becoming more evident as the wine evolves: a complex, harmonious and fascinating wine that keeps developing over time to display new, surprising and complex facets. Expect notes of dark cherry, raspberry, orange, rose petal, licorice and tar. With grippy tannins and a mineral floral finish.
Made from Nebbiolo grapes from the Monforte region growing on lightly sandy, calcareous marl and limestone soils of south-west exposure. Barolo Ginestra is fermentated in stainless steel for 15 days. The wine is refined in Slavonian oak barrels (30 hl) for 3 years, then rests in bottle before release.
