What distinguishes the Barolo Franco is that it is a limited bottling of original pre-phylloxera roo

Characteristics

The Otin Fiorin Piè Franco Nebbiolo selection is the ungrafted part of the Otin Fiorin 3.5ha plot in the Gabutti grand cru. Grapes are harvested in October.

The wine ferments spontaneously. Not even a pied de cuve is used. There is no temperature control. The process of vinification is traditional, i.e. long macerations in glass-lined cement vats and botte, large Slavonian oak, chestnut and acacia barrels. The wine matures for a minimum of three years in old botte. It is neither clarified nor filtered.

What distinguishes the Barolo Franco is that it is a limited bottling of original pre-phylloxera rootstock. The difference is startling between pre- and post-phylloxera grape expression. Tasting Rupestris and Franco next to each other is a unique experience, since it is the only Barolo from the same terroir where this is possible. Franco is always elegant, deeper and more complex. It is a cult Barolo.
