Three different producers, three different styles: the area of Bussia Soprana has its elegant power, Serralunga that surprises for its mineral flavors, and the majesty of the Bricco Boschis where its vines live challenging the climate, winds and grim terrains.
GIVE THE ROSES: the vineyard is located in Bussia Soprana, fraction of Monforte d'Alba, Dardi sub-area, with a surface of 8 He has, of which 6 lives entirely in Nebbiolo da Barolo. The area has always been considered among the best for the production of Barolo with a good and long-lived body. This vineyard represents the constant search for quality to which Beppe Colla has dedicated his life: in 1961 Beppe was the first to write the toponym "Bussia" on the label, giving way to the enhancement of the Crus. The altitude is between 300 e i 350 m. above sea level. The glass is intense garnet bone and the nose is large and elegant with a delicately spiced bouquet of flowers., small red fruits. On the palate it is very structured, opulent, supported by soft tannins, with hints of ripe fruit and licorice. A "majestic" traditional nebbiolo with the harmony and complexity of a great orchestra! Extraordinary aging ability.
BAROLO SERRALUNGA in the glass it is garnet red, delicate and elegant. The olfactory bouquet is rich and full of vitality, with an overwhelming intensity composed of hints of black cherries and rose petals, licorice and cloves, leather and spices. On the palate the taste is dominated by robust tannins that lead to forget it in the cellar for a couple of years, and promise to support it for at least a decade. E’ the most immediate Barolo from the Principiano winery, easy and sincere and that you don't have to wait for the right opportunity to drink it.
BAROLO BRICCO BOSCHIS takes its name from the homonymous hill on which Cavallotto has placed his vineyard. From steep slopes, this Bricco is famous for having numerous vineyards, or more precisely micro particles, enjoying a unique terroir: here there is always a particular microclimate that with the passage of 4 seasons perfectly marks the life times of the vines and grapes, Moreover, the mineralogical composition of the soils made up of calcareous marl and sand completes a unique production framework. In the glass it is intense ruby red with slight orange reflections. On the nose a dominant scent of red and black fruits, accentuated by notes of tobacco, licorice and rose petals. The hot mid-summer period has given rise to hints of intense fruit which will then become expansive and generous but not cloying. Bricco Boschis has strong and persistent tannins on the palate and is extremely balanced and elegant.
