Colour/Taste/Aftertaste/Aroma/Gastronomy

The Nebbiolo grapes grown on marly vineyards facing the rising sun in Novello follow a well-established production procedure in making this Barolo each year. Its lushness and quality are already apparent from the marked, compact garnet-red colour that meets the eye; then on the nose, which is packed with fragrant notes reminiscent of jam, dried fruit (apricots and plums), cherries in alcohol, and hints of spices, cinnamon, vanilla and tar. The fullness of its taste rounds off a warm and intriguing wine of structure with a long aromatic finish. It is always grounds for celebration at the table, where this powerfully built wine is a match for all the dishes of international cuisine: game, stewed and braised red meats, roasts, and very mature cheeses. And when the meal is over, Barolo continues to be good company on lazy evenings, making work and haste just a distant memory.
