Tasting notes:

The Dezzani Barolo San Carlo is a slightly lighter garnet red in colour (this will slowly evolve into the distinctive orange colour of older nebbiolo) with a lovely nose of ripe red fruits, toasty oak and vanilla and a touch of tar. 

The palate is full and complex. The famous tannic, higher acidity structure of the grape is present, but well integrated, giving a wine with firm structure combined with a smooth, rounded mid palate. There is warm, sweeter red fruits flavours and more touches of tar and tobacco. Darker black fruits linger to the finish.

About the wine:

The Dezzani Barolo San Carlo is carefully harvested by hand in early October before undergoing gentle pressing and a 40 day maceration and period and subsequent malolactic fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats.

The wine then spends 24 months ageing in large oak barrels and a further 24 months ageing in the bottle before relaese. 

About the producer:

Dezzani is a Company born from a passion for wine. It was 1934 when the grandfather Luigi Dezzani founded his historic Winery, at that time dedicated to the production and distribution of local grapes.

The key to the later successes achieved in the 70-80's has been the enthusiasm Luigi passed to his son Romolo, who made Dezzani known not only in Piedmont but all over Italy, becoming one of the reference points of the typicity of Piedmont.

Following their father's philosophy, Franca, Luigi and Giovanni, the 3rd generation, have spread the Dezzani brand into the international markets. Today, this is guided by Rocca Family (five generations in wine business) and Villa Rivalta (10.000 hectares and hundreds of families collected in cooperative) that are developing the company through a sensible supply chain control, modern technologies and the love of the wine from centuries gone by.
