Harvest I-II decade of October.
Vinification Vinification: The fermentation is of a traditional type, made in galvanized steel tin, with an average duration of 8-12 days at controlled temperature (30-31 ° C) and frequent replenishment. There is a stay of the must on the skins for a few days to optimize the extraction phase of the polyphenolic substances and to facilitate the start of the subsequent malolactic fermentation. Aromatization: Tradition - dated from the beginning of the 1800s - wanted to add Barolo's wine to an infusion of herbs and spices with a base of china calissaja, to increase its ability to withstand time and to propose it as a medicinal drink. More of twenty herbs and china are put together to macerate in alcohol subdivided into three groups depending on the aroma to be extracted.
Aging After about three months of maceration, the infusion is harvested and aged for six months in oak barrels to obtain the right harmony. After this period the extracts are added to the wine by combining alcohol and sugar. After a couple of months the wine is ready for bottling. Barolo chinato is a specialty ideal to conquer the palate of an increasingly demanding and refined consumer.
Alcohol 16.50% by volume
