Oesio Oltredieci

Vintage 2007

The 2007 vintage had an anticipated start of the season due to a mild winter. Flowering started earlier and began at beginning of May followed by a cool period with frequent rainfall. July was a dry month with high temperatures although mitigated by constant wind and low humidity followed by August that didn’t exceed in high temperatures. The advanced harvest in comparison with 2006, was characterized by very healthy grapes and a reduction of quantity by 15%. To remember an optimal acid framework and very intense aroma.

Winemaking Information

Procedure pre-fermentazione: grape bunches are handsorted on a vibrating table and chilled with carbonic snow to avoid oxidation and reduce considerably the use of sulphur. After destemming, berries are hand-sorted on a second vibrating table and finally softly crushed.
This process is “100% screw conveyor free” to handle grapes as gently as possible.

Wine makeing: the must is cooled to preserve its best characters before fermentation in conic oak vats at controlled temperature. The maceration is long acting using délestage and, partially, submerged cap technique for over 25 days.

Oak refining: the ageing is made in medium size oak casks (2500-4000 litres) and a little part in barriques followed by a long ageing in the bottle.

The difference is...

Oesio Roero Oltredieci is an important wine produced only in small quantity and only in extraordinary vintages with the full respect of sustainable viticulture’s practices. Thanks to the clay and sandstone soil this wine beyond 10 years is the proof of the potentiality of nebbiolo grown in these hills.
