Tasting properties: A very complete and long aging wine from a great vineyard of Serralunga d'Alba. The colour is intense ruby red. The smell is intense, pleasant, balanced and spicy with a bouquet of plums, cedar, tobacco, liquorice, soy and floral notes. The taste is full bodied, concentrated and rich, with a firm tannic structure that classic Barolo need for a long ageing .
Recommended with: As with the Barolo Villero, traditional combinations are with game or red meat dishes. The great balance of this Barolo makes it very suitable also with mature cheese bread.
