Boeri Noto, Monferrato Rosso DOC 2008
Monferrato Rosso is produced in the Bricco Quaglia hills in Bionzo, a small hamlet of Costigliole d’Asti from Nebbiolo and Barbera grapes. Only the best bunches of grapes are selected and collected into small wooden crates. Then grapes are gently pressed, followed by fermentation on skins for 7-8 days. Aged in new barriques for 12 months. the colour is intense ruby red. There are sweet aromas of cherry marmalade, licorice and aromatic herbs. On the palate the fruit dominates the ample body and with a delicate touch of oak spices and of silky tannins. Serve at 18-20C. Aging potential is 12-15 years. This wonderful rich wine should be served like a Barolo with red meat and game.
