Vinification Details

  • 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.

History

  • Located among the Langhe hills, the Barolo zone is a collection of different mesoclimate, soil types, altitudes and positions that can have pronounced effect on the development of the Nebbiolo grape and the resulting Barolo wine. Within the Barolo zone there are two major soil types separated by the Alba-Barolo road. Within the communes of Serralunga d'Alba and Monforte d'Alba is a compact, sandstone based oil dating from the Helvetian epoch.

Regional Information

  • 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. Only vineyards planted in primarily calcareous clay soils in the hills with suitable slopes and orientations are considered suitable for Barolo production.

Misleading Tesco Finest Appellation.

2 stars

Very disappointed. I wish that I had read the reviews before buying it. Over the years, the reviews have got progressively worse which does make me wonder why Tesco are still selling it with their Finest appellation. For me, it has made the appellation worthless. I hope Tesco will tell their side of the story I bought it a week ago.

Not worth it

Very disappointing for a Barolo. I like to have a selection of favourite wines in for an evening when I feel like opening something a bit special. I thought I had opened the wrong bottle... We found this had very little body and a harsh aftertaste. SO disappointing. We’ve had better for half the price. Will not buy again, should have taken it back.

This is a bad wine, or at least a bad bottle. It isn't corked; it's just completely dead in the class. At this price, a shocker!

Not worth it

Review from tesco.com

I purchased this wine on special offer from £16.00 to £8.00, in my opinion this wine is not even worth a fiver.

Not the 'Finest' Barolo

Review from tesco.com

Expectations are always high with Barolo but whilst this Tesco Finest bottle was perfectly drinkable it lacked the depth of flavour you expect from this wine. It might improve with age, but I will not be drinking this particular bottle again.
