About

Product Description:

"Barolo is a great red wine with a venerable history, whose qualities were prized by the famous statesman Camillo Benso, Conte di Cavour.

It is produced exclusively from the nebbiolo grape. The vineyards that yielded this particular Barolo lie in the best viticultural zones of the classic area of production. Following a traditional fermentation and maceration, this Barolo matures for 2 years in large oak botti, where it develops the tannins and extractive compounds that will give it superb structure and enable it to age for many years.

Garnet-edged rich ruby, the bouquet is pleasurable, generous, and evolved, hinting of violets and dried rose petals. On the palate, it is dry, full, and robust; lean-structured and sinewy, but smooth and harmonious." - Importer
