Harvested by hand, the grapes are collected in baskets before being taken to the winery. The grapes are crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks with 10 - 15 days maceration. The wine is then aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 24 months prior to bottling.
Since its founding, the Fratelli Martini Secondo Luigi has been a company in constant evolution. Its most recent notable symbol is the futuristic barrel cellar dubbed the “Magnificat,” for its feeling of sacredness and majesty as well as its power to inspire and awe. This monumental structure is built on two floors, and its spacial design draws inspiration from Aztec temples. On the lower level, some 6,000 barrels are housed and arranged in crosslike passages, dividing the cellar into four sections. Here the barrels rest in a sort of grand cathedral, with majestic cross vaults of reinforced concrete and glulam. A winding staircase, lit by a skylight that gives it a golden shine, serves as entry to the second level - a balcony overlooking the winery. From there stands a pyramid with a glass dome from which light sneaks in all the way to the barrels. A large terrace of engulfs the pyramid, where typical vineyards of the land - nebbiolo, barbera, dolcetto and moscato - fill the view.
Barolo wines are made from the Nebbiolo grape grown in and around the village of the same name in Piedmont, Northern Italy. The zone of production extends into the communes of Barolo, Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d'Alba and parts of the communes of Cherasco, Diano d'Alba, Grinzane Cavour, La Morra, Monforte d'Alba, Novello, Roddi, Verduno, all in the province of Cuneo, south-west of Alba. Only vineyards planted in primarily calcareous-clay soils in the hills with suitable slopes and orientations are considered suitable for Barolo production. Barolo is often described as having the aromas of tar and roses, and the wines are noted for their ability to age and usually take on a rust red tinge as they mature.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 3 years
