BAROLO

  GRAPES: 100% Nebbiolo

 
The Wine: Pugnane Barolo is made of 100% Nebbiolo grapes. This wine is produced exclusively with selected grapes from one of the best locations in the Barolo region from Villero situated in Castiglione Falletto called Pugnane and traditionally mature, with natural yeasts, in large barrels made of Slovenian oak for approximately 3 years.  The wine is then bottled and aged an additional 8 months in cool, dark cellars, before being placed in the market.

Tasting Notes: Pugnane Barolo is bright burgundy red colored wine with aromas of dark berries, flowers and cocoa.  Dry, full bodied red wine with complexity and harmonious tannin structure of a great Barolo. The palate is rich and round with caramel and spice and a touch of oak in the long satisfying finish. This wine is an excellent match for savory sauce pastas, roast pork, roasted leg of lamb or aged cheeses.

BARBERA

GRAPES: 100% Barbera

The Wine: Pugnane Barbera d’Alba is made of 100% Barbera grapes. After a careful hand selection of grapes, the grapes are gently crushed and fermentation, with natural yeast, begins in wooden casks. The wine is aged for approximately 1 year in Slovenian oak.  The wine is then bottled and aged an additional 3 months in cool, dark cellars, before being placed in the market.

Tasting Notes: Pugnane Barbera is deep ruby red color with burgundy hues with age. Very pleasing black-cherry, herb and toast aromas open to a mouthful of concentrated fruit, pepper, and cedar currants.  Dry, full bodied red wine with great balance and sweet tannins.   The palate is rich, and round with a lingering cherry finish.   This wine is an excellent match for savory sauce pasta dishes, meat dishes such as Brasato or roasted meats.
