Barolo Foedre-Aged American Wild 5.9%
Aged in the first fill of one of our 14 yr old Barolo foedres for multiple seasons. Dry, but wonderfully fruited, vinous character is supported by complex wood tannin structure while barnyard earthiness plays off ripe pineapple and nectarine notes from mixed fermentation of Brettanomyces claussenii, mango like farmhouse ale yeast, and acidic wild cultures. Initial blushes are of nectarines, strawberries, and blackberry jam with a deeper base of soil, mahogany, and India ink.The finish is a long, meandering affair of tannin, slate like minerality, pie crusts, and black cherry.
