Quinto Chionetti, the grandfather of the current owner Nicola Chionetti, with foresight, long ago bought a small vineyard, Roncaglie, in the Barolo municipality of La Morra. This location is now one of the best crus in La Morra and the wines from this location impress with their elegance and harmony.
The manual harvest of the Nebbiolo grapes usually takes place during October. After destemming and light pressing of the berries, the mash ferments in wooden vats. The expansion then takes place over a two-year period in large oak barrels. After all, the wine matures in the bottle for another six months.
The bouquet of the Chionetti Quinto 2017 Barolo Roncaglie DOCG impresses with its fruity and floral aromas. Primarily dried roses, peaches and cherries, but also a spicy scent and a hint of liquorice present. On the palate, the Barolo feels warm and elegant. The tannins are fine, the balance is very good with a good finish and light earthy notes. This Barolo is to be enjoyed immediately and for the next ten years. A perfect partner with lamb, game, red meat and aged cheeses.
