De Forville Nebbiolo d'Alba San Rocco


SKU 85515200185


This very special cuvée originates from vines located in the commune of San Rocco d'Elvio which is perched on a hilltop in between the Barbaresco and Barolo zones. Effectively, we consider this wine to be the "Barolo" of the De Forville estate as its structure more closely resembles that of Barolo than it does Barbaresco. The tannins are more firm, the fruit darker, the wine more somber. Handled in a fashion similar to the vinification of the Barbarescos made at the estate, the wine undergoes a longer fermentation and elevage than does the Langhe Nebbiolo and is released later. Production for the US market is approximately 3000 bottles per year.
