Bricco Blina’ is the name of the vineyard. This wine is a direct, straightforward rendition of the Barbera grape. Fresh acidity and berry flavors are the hallmarks of Barbera, but low yields and old vines give this wine very good depth and concentration, too. Fermentation and aging are completed in stainless steel, and the wine is bottled before the following harvest.

Winemaker’s Notes

Luminous ruby color. Forest berries, spices, leather, moist earth and dried plum, layered in the aroma. Soft, round taste, well-balanced acidity and clean and persistent aftertaste. Very pleasing, and ready to drink.

Pair with flavorful first-course dishes, such as pasta, polenta, risotto, or with cheese and red meats.

Critical Acclaim

“Delicate floral nose with an earthy, slightly peaty background. Natural but very precise palate, with fine tannins and a concentrated, bone-dry finish which needs a little time to open up. ”

Of a light red colour, Cembra Schiava has an elegant aroma evoking fresh red forest fruits. Soft and well-balanced on the palate, it has a slightly acidic note which marries well with traditional local dishes.

Vinification process
Manual harvesting in early October; pre-fermentation for 36/48 hours; pressing; static decantation of the must; fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks; ageing in fibre-glass reinforced tanks for about 4/5 months before bottling.

The Wine Advocate
Rating: 93 (4/1/2012)
The 2008 Barolo is loaded with finesse and grace. Dark red cherries, flowers, spices, mint and minerals are some of the nuances that flow from this beautifully delineated, gorgeous Barolo. Floral notes reappear to frame the sublime finish. Altare’s straight Barolo doesn’t get as much recognition as some of his other wines, but it is once again fabulous in 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.
