Coste di Rose is a prestigious hill with full eastern exposure located in the municipality of Barolo. It is characterized by a very steep slope - more than 40% - that fosters the perfect maturation of the Nebbiolo clusters, which are extremely demanding in terms of light and heat. Coste di Rose is positioned in the geological area that dates back to the Helvetian age, but curiously, the soil quality is moderately calcareous and rich in quartz sand and fine silt. In fact, during regular agricultural operations shell fossils still surface. These peculiar characteristics lend the Nebbiolo vines intense, refined aromas that bring to mind hints of wild mint.
Barolo Coste di Rose matures 4 years after being harvested and reaches its peak condition between 4 and 20 years of age.
Barolo Coste di Rose is ruby-red in color tending towards garnet. Its intense nose has distinct traces of roses, liquorice, spices and aromatic herbs, especially wild mint. The taste is full, elegant, and full-bodied. The delicate color of this wine and its structure make it a Barolo that is immediately pleasant, balanced and harmonious.
Food pairings: this wine is well-matched with typical appetizers from Langhe: raw meat, vegetable flan, eggs with truffles. It is also excellent with tajarin (traditional Langhe egg pasta), roasts, sheep and goat’s milk and mildly-seasoned cheeses.
