La Vierge Satyricon 2011

39% Sangiovese, 33% Nebbiolo, 28% Barbera. All three varieties were harvested separately in the early morning. Grapes were fully de-stemmed before crushing and then cold macerated for 5-7 days before temperature controlled fermentation. The wine was racked into 50% new French barriques where it aged for 15 months. This shows the cherry fruit of Barbera, gamey tea-leaf notes of Sangiovese, and the red fruit and tarry spice of Nebbiolo with chunky tannin and bright acidity.
