Manzone: the great wines of Langhe, from Rossese Bianco to Monforte d'Alba Barolo
Perugia, Italy
Thursday, May 23rd, 2019
After three years, Manzone winery takes part to a DiWineTaste event by charming readers with its stellar wines of Langhe and Monforte d'Alba. An evening, in fact, dedicated to the typical varieties and wines of this land, a journey having as protagonists the exclusive Rossese Bianco, the renowned Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo grapes, therefore Barolo. To tell Langhe, Monforte d'Alba and the wines of the evening has been Mauro Manzone, owner and wine maker of the family estate, who particularly focused on the diversity and characteristics of Nebbiolo as well as the peculiarities of Barolo's crus Bricat, Castelletto and Gramolere. Moreover, of particular interest, the narration of Rossese Bianco, a variety rediscovered and reevaluated by Giovanni Manzone and that today is getting the interest of both producers and consumers for its remarkable elegance and the capability of making wines with interesting aging and evolution potentials. The event, in fact, started with Langhe Rossese Bianco Rosserto 2016, which, after three years, express a remarkable crispness and elegance with evident evolution potentials for many years to come. The evening therefore proceeds with Dolcetto d'Alba Le Ciliegie 2017, a wine of extraordinary agreeableness, expresses the typical fruit character of Dolcetto, an impeccable cleanness and an interesting versatility at the table. The event proceeds with Barbera d'Alba Superiore La Marchesa 2016, aged for 16 months in cask, expresses a character of extraordinary elegance and power, perfectly joined to the typical crispness of this variety, as well as being characterized for a perfect sensorial balance of clean and intense aromas joined to a pleasing gustatory profile. The evening proceeds with the three Barolos protagonists of the event, perfect interpreters of the characteristics of power and class expressed by the territory of Monforte d'Alba. The first one of the is Barolo Gramolere 2014, aged for 30 months in cask, expresses particular elegance and finesse to the nose, also thanks to the vintage characterized by a cool climate with mild temperatures. Gramolere however expresses the power typical of this cru, with robust tannins and perfectly fused to the roundness of alcohol and the strength of acidity. It is then the turn of Barolo Castelletto 2012, also in this case aged for 30 months in cask, characterized, in respect to the previous one and also thanks to a different vintage, for an olfactory profile or dark fruits, expressing in the mouth an extraordinary balance, rounder tannins, without failing to have the powerful character typical in Barolos of Monforte d'Alba. The evening ended with Barolo Riserva Gramolere 2011 - DiWineTaste five diamonds and best winr of April 2018 - expressing in the glass a remarkable complexity of tertiary aromas perfectly joined to flower and fruits notes typical in Nebbiolo, as well as power in the mouth although majestically balanced by smooth tannins however allowing the typical acidity of the variety to properly express. The event has been conducted by Antonello Biancalana - DiWineTaste chief editor - who has also conducted the sensorial tasting of Manzone's wines and created, as usual, the dishes paired to the wines of the evening.
