Schiavenza Barolo Ceretta DOCG 2013

$65.99

Category:

Rose, cherry, plum and spice flavors languish effortlessly in this deceptively solid red. The beefy tannins take over midway as this unfolds, yet the lasting impression is balanced, revealing tobacco and underbrush notes. Best from 2022 through 2042. 333 cases made

ABOUT THE PRODUCER: SCHIAVENZA

Schiavenza is located in Serralunga d’Alba in the heart of Piedmont’s Langhe district, celebrated for its great Barolo vineyards. The estate was founded in 1956 by the brothers Vittorio and Ugo Alessandria; the estate and surrounding area were formerly part of the Opera Pia Barolo (a castle that is kind of like the Hospices du Beaune: part educational institution and part hospital) whose vineyards were traditionally worked by sharecroppers. The local dialect for sharecropper is schiavenza. Today, the estate is run by the second-generation Alessandria sisters, Enrica and Maura, and their husbands Luciano Pira and Walter Anselma. Their holdings include 9.2 hectares in Serralunga with a small 0.5ha plot in Monforte d’Alba, and include the heralded crus Prapò, Cerretta, and Broglio.   For the last 19 years, they have also run Trattoria Schiavenza, right in the middle of the village of Serralunga, where their traditional fare draws in both local winemakers and tourists.
