Complex aromas of rose petals, black tea, dried flowers, dark fruits and hints of wood follow through to a silky, yet full bodied Barolo, with silky tannins and a long finish. Refined and fascinating. Drink now thru 2030.
Made from the Nebbiolo grape, the wine is garnet red with hues of brick and an ethereal "Barolo" nose of chocolate, white tobacco, tar and rose petals. On the palate it is full-bodied with flavors of silky red fruit, game and earth. Made from Nebbiolo grapes grown on the slopes of the Barolo wine-making area, which is formed by eleven villages all located on the lower spurs of the Langhe. Young Barolo is distinguished by its ruby-red colour and by a marked tannin content which gradually gives way through skillful maturing in wood to a soft, velvety, delicate flavor.
