Barbaresco DOCG Vintage 2015

Wine

To the north-east of Alba, the small section of the Langa which includes the communes of Barbaresco, Treiso, Neive and S. Rocco Seno d’Elvio, is all intensively laid out in vineyards and the hills open out sweetly in immense amphitheatres to fall almost sheerly where the Tanaro divides them from the plain.

About 650 hectares of vineyards, from which are produced little less three million bottles of Barbaresco DOCG.

A wine of great prestige and tradition of Piedmont, made with selected grapes and aged in oak barrels.

For its full flavour and austere is suitable to be accompanied with important dishes.

Barbaresco DOCG 2011

Bicchiere dalla virtuosa enologia esecutiva, limpido si rivela Demarie.

La suadenza polposa di pera del Roero Arneis Docg 2014, la cremosa spuma della dolcissima uva del Moscato d’Asti 2014, la visciola di ottima suadenza e di vivida intensità d’aroma.

Di gran potenza balsamica il Barbaresco 2011, ben tondo al gusto, il migliore ci dona un gran varietale.

Quando si parla di Piemonte vinicolo non è facile pensare al Roero, ma in questa zona a metà strada tra Asti e Cuneo le vigne si coltivano da sempre. Ne sanno qualcosa all’azienda Demarie, che da più di tre generazioni si impegna nella conduzione di vigneti nei comuni di Vezza, Castagnito, Castellinaldo e Guarene. Sono terreni sabbiosi e ricchi di residui di fossili marini, su cui vengono allevati i vitigni nebbiolo in primo luogo, ma anche arneis, moscato, dolcetto. Nel 2013, a ottobre, è stata inaugurata la nuova cantina: pannelli fotovoltaici sul tetto, centrale a biomasse, tecnologia che rispetta il territorio.

Barbaresco DOCG 2012 – 90/100

Da uve nebbiolo. Matura in botte. Rubino granato limpido. Olfatto su note speziate e di erbe medicinali ma fresche, balsamico e classico floreale di rose antiche. Bocca piena, con tannino giovanile ma trama fitta e nervosa. Finale floreale.

Sempre più prestante in tutti e tre i parametri qualitativi determinanti il frutto del bicchiere Demarie. Doti di fittezza dell’uva che il Barbaresco 2010 illustrana con la sua insistenza e persistenza maestosamente speziata.

Vine

Nebbiolo is the oldest indigenous red-grape vine of Piedmont and one of the noblest and most prestigious in Italy.

Its name derives from ‘nebbia’, the Italian word for mist or fog: some say this is owing to the ‘misty’ look of its grapes, with their velvety covering, and others that it is because the late-ripening grape is often harvested during early autumn fogs.

Known also as ‘Queen of red grapes’ it is a finicky vine, requiring elaborate care and attention in order to thrive.

It is precisely for this reason that it has known both heydays and moments of utter abandon in the past, although local producers have remained faithful to it through thick and thin, continuing to make the great wines it is capable of producing.

Nebbiolo is a demanding vine, needing exactly the right soil type, a south-facing hillside, pruning and training.

A calcareous tufa-based soil is ideal for this vine that buds early – towards the middle of April – and ripens later than most other varieties, around the middle of October.

It suffers sudden changes in temperature but oscillations between day and night temperatures are an advantage during the grape ripening phase.

For a correct formation of tannins in the grape skins, south or south-west facing hillsides are required, where spring frosts rarely occur.

The Nebbiolo vine produces strong powerful wines, rich in alcohol, that express their characteristics after a period of ageing.

From the cultivation of Nebbiolo, Piedmont produces some of its greatest red wines, the pride of the Region.
