Original and absolutely rare gift set including three bottles of Barolo, from the prestigious and historical winery Bersano, Antico Podere Conti della Cremosina, in Nizza Monferrato (CN), a typical italian style decorated plate, and a brochure of the Bersano plate collection, all enclosed in a perfectly intact and aged wooden case. The perfect gift for a wine connoisseur and collector.
Originally the set included three 1974 Barolo bottles. However during the transportation to the US, one bottle licked and was not available for sale anymore, and it was replaced with a 1971 Barolo bottle, which was also a great vintage for Barolo.
Located in the Asti region, Bersano is currently the largest privately held winery in Piedmont with 10 estates and over 230 hectares under vine in the best areas of Monferrato and Langhe. The winery was founded in 1907 by Giuseppe Bersano, and brought to prominence by his nephew Arturo in the 1950's and 1960's. In 1985, the Massimelli and Soave families purchased Bersano and immediately returned focus to the vineyards. The result is bright, fresh, approachable classic wines in the traditional style produced under the steady hand of acclaimed winemaker Roberto Morosinotto.
Barolo is one of Italy's most prestigious wine regions, known for producing high-quality red wines made from the Nebbiolo grape variety in the northern Italian region of Piedmont. These wines are known for their complexity, aging potential, and the ability to reflect the unique terroir of the region. They are characterized by a rich tannic structure, rust-red coloration and 'tar and roses' aromas.
Barolo is required by law to be aged for at least 38 months after the harvest prior to release, of which at least 18 months must be in Slovonian Oak Casks. To gain the classification of Riserva the minimum ageing period prior to release is five years.
