Barbaresco Casot

2015

From the eponymous cru in the village of Treiso.  The 3 hectares of vines here are 35 years old, facing SW at 350m.   Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel, with an extended maceration on the skins, 70 days; aged in 1000-3000L oak botti for 2 years, followed by an additional 4 months in bottle.

"The core flavors of strawberry and raspberry are shaded by eucalyptus, leather and tobacco notes. Reveals an element of sweet spices as this plays out gracefully on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2040."
