x6 - £31.83 - per bottle
x12 - £31.50 - per bottle
Open wine bursting with the radiant personality of the vintage. Soft, supple and harmonious through to the finish, the Barolo caresses the palate with layers of floral, spiced fruit. Oak, roasted coffee bean and star anise aromas lead the nose. On the palate, notes of fennel, licorice, mocha and espresso lend depth to a core of dried cherry while firmly delineated tannins provide the framework. Pairs well with cheese, lamb, beef and game.
|Style||Rich, intense, medium-bodied red wine|
Vineyard & Wine Region Information
A small, family-run estate in the heart of Italy's prestigious Piedmont region. Two hectares of 30+ year old vines are managed with strict viticultural rules, particularly in terms of yield. Minimal interference occurs in the vineyard; the use of chemical sprays is limited. Planted on south-east facing slopes with clay and loam soils. The hillside is divided by a fissure running from the top of the hill to the valley below creating two distinct growing areas. The annual temperatures, rainfall and climatic conditions determine the quantity of Barolo produced.
