For long aging, color stability and structure

Lalvin BRL97™ was selected as a result of a four-year study by the University of Torino from over 600 isolates taken from 31 wineries in the Barolo region. The goal was to find a selected natural yeast from Nebbiolo that is able to retain both the color and the varietal character of this grape. BRL97™ has received good feedback from North American winemakers for its color stabilization and sensory contributions in heavier structured reds, such as Zinfandel, Barbera, Merlot and Nebbiolo, with long aging potential.
