The grapes used in the production of this wine come from vineyards located on nicely sloped hills, that are characterized by soil mainly composed of clay and limestone, interspersed with compact layers of sandstone and covered with quartz sand and fine silt. These elements give the wine a solid structure, many mineral nutrients, a vigorous but balanced personality and a remarkable bouquet.
Initially the wine ages in small oak barrels, then it is blended in the traditional large Slavonian oak barrels, which contribute to making this wine harmonious and balanced and to enhancing the bouquet’s elegance. The wine completes its ageing in the bottle for some months before going onto the market. Barolo reaches maturity 4 years after being harvested and the peak condition is between 4 and 20 years.
The color is garnet red with ruby reflections. The aroma is intense and persistent with distinct traces of spices, cinnamon, absinthe, tobacco and wild rose. The taste is full and elegant, with soft tannins. The spicy and the woody aromas blend perfectly.
This vintage matches perfectly with the traditional Langhe egg pasta (tajarin), ravioli, red meats, stews, boiled and braised meats and game. It pairs well with sheep and goat’s milk cheeses and other mildly-seasoned cheeses.
