Product Description

The colour is deep ruby red with garnet tints while the bouquet is powerful with forest fruit notes, blackcurrants, raspberries as well as mossy, earthy aromas and hints of oak. On the palate this wine is broad, soft and powerful with a superb finish thanks to the tactile sensations which recall the silk. It is a long-tasting wine, matured in barrel and barrique for 24 months and refined in bottle for 18 months. Serving temperature is 19-20°C and it is served with roast meat dishes, feathered game, ripe and strong cheeses.

Details

Varietal: Nebbiolo

Region: Barolo

Region Description:

Considered the king of Italian wines, Barolo is made from the Nebbiolo grape in the Piedmont region of Italy. Full bodied, high in tannic, acidity, and alcohol, their aromas suggest tar, violets, roses, strawberries, even truffles. Very similar to, if a little more full-bodied than, Barbaresco. Barolos need to be aged for at least three years in the winery (five years if it is a Reserva), but benefits from additional aging. More recent vintages are fruitier in flavor, often a bit oaky, and may be ready to drink as soon as two to five years after release.
