Product Description

Roddi is the least known township of the Barolo area. Here there used to be the University for truffle dogs. Bricco Ambrogio is a spendid, but nearly unknown cru. The Scavino family placed a bet on this recently purchased vineyard even in the difficult 2002 vintage. The result: amazing.

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.
