Terroir: The Ca Bianca Barolo is sourced from Nebbiolo from low-yielding vines planted at high density. The vineyards are situated on a east/southeast facing slope at 950 feet in elevation with primary soils of composite and clay.
Vinification: Grapes are sorted and macerated at cool temperatures prior to vinification in stainless steel. Following fermentation the young wines are aged in a combination of large Slovenian oak cask and new and used French barrels for a period of 20 months.
Garnet color tending towards strong blue; intense and ethereal bouquet of vanilla, cloves and clean woodland undergrowth; full, firm but velvety flavor with a fine, very lingering aftertaste of liquorice and ripe red fruits.
Score: 92 PointsWine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson
Cherry, leather, licorice, tobacco and spice aromas and flavors are backed by a fresh, supple profile. Firms up, yet remains balanced and long. Minerally finish. Best from 2019 through 2032.
