It has a clear, classic nose with notes of wood tar, spicy spices and a fruit strongly resembling black cherries in alcohol; the end is accompanied by the slightest hint of very delicate roses and violets.
Boasso Barolo Gabutti has a ruby-red colour, not too dark, with garnet reflections.
The mouth reflects these notes, with burnt wood and ash that lead to a sweet and syrupy taste of raspberry and cherry; the tannins are dense and ripe, bearing the vitality and exuberance given by this land. The same tannins lead to an evolution of aromas, which guarantee their very long maintenance over time.
The grapes are hand-picked in mid-October, being placed in perforated baskets for their transport to the cellar. The yield of grapes per hectare is 80 quintals. The fermentation takes place in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks at 28°C with frequent daily pumping over for 12-15 days. The tumultuous fermentation is followed by submerged-cap fermentation for 15 days in order to completely extract the tannins and aromas.
The wine is placed in new, 10 hectolitre oak barrels, where it remains for 3 years. The wine is never filtered, and is left to further age in the bottle.
