Tasting properties: A very interesting and long aging barolo from Castiglione Falletto. The colour is intense amber-red. The smell is balanced and pleasant, with plums, underbrush and minerals. The taste is wonderfully sweet on entry, then powerful with strong tannins in the middle palate and with a very long finish.
Recommended with: This wine can combine with every dish (except sweets) going particularly well with meat dishes and dry mature cheese
