  • 2017 Barolo ‘Patres’, San SilvestroRed Wine

    2017 Barolo ‘Patres’, San Silvestro

    £2650

    A stylish and traditionally styled Barolo, with expressive aromas of dried fruit, roses and tar. The deep fruits are layered with earthy minerality on the smooth and mouth-filling palate and sweet tannins weave through to a very long, elegant finish.

    The name ‘Nebbiolo’ comes from one of two schools of thought: some believe as the harvest of Nebbiolo usually occurs in October, when foggy weather is common, it takes the name from ‘nebbia’ meaning ‘fog’; however, others believe the name is derived from the presence of ‘pruina’, a substance which gives the appearance of a foggy haze on the berry’s skin. The Nebbiolo vines are grown in the northern Italian region of Piedmont, where the climate is continental and is tempered by the Tanaro River and its tributaries. Grown in marl clay and sand soils, the late-ripening variety is usually harvested in early October.

    2013 Langhe Pinot Nero, G.D. Vajra

    £3175

    By appellation Nebbiolo cannot be planted at an altitude of 497 metres, so Aldo Vaira planted Pinot Noir at the top of Bricco delle Viole and Bricco di Vergne vineyards. and in doing so created benchmark wine for the region.

    The 2013 Pinot Nero/Noir is striking in its beauty.   The rich structure is accompanied by great delicacy and aromatic finesse, playing with the dominant note of marasca cherry. Being savoury, it surprises with its persistent and deep aroma range.

    Vajra has created this Piemontese tribute to one of his favourite grape varieties, Pinot Noir, which he feels is a point of reference for many producers and lovers of Nebbiolo. The vineyard was planted in 1999, covers 1.2 hectares at an altitude of 497 metres above sea level on sandy marine soils, with ancient fossilised deposits.
