Fletcher 'Alta Pete' Barolo 2013 (Piedmont, Italy) "...power and elegance..."
50% from Barolo and 50% Monforte D'Alba comunes. This blend is a matching of elegance and power. Elegance derived from Barolo part with the vines rooted in the famous Tortonian, calcareous marl and a South-Easterly aspect, and the power from that of the older, iron rich Helvetian soils of Monforte with a South-Westerly aspect. The vines are an average age of 40 years and are massal selected. Aged for three and a half years in 300L barriques. - David Fletcher
