$52.95 Excl. tax
EAN Code:

Well rounded with flavors of cherry, chocolate, oak and vanilla with a hint of tobacco. Medium body with high tannins and acidity.

Barolo is a delicious red wine from the Piedmont region of Northern Italy. It is made strictly from Nebbiolo grapes.

Aromatic with rich tannins and characteristics of old oak, these wines are considered by most to be some Italy's finest.

Traditionally a wine enjoyed by gentry, Barolo grows in the region's finest plots of soil.

This wine is robust with evident notes of red flowers on the nose. The palate will enjoy significant acid and strong, long, earthy finish. These wines collect well, although consult a specialist to get a hold of of the best vintages.

Pair this food with big and flavorful pastas, or proteins - steak and well-spiced veal. Avoid underseasoned vegetables, leafy greens, or seafood.

The Nebbiolo grape does not travel well and is high maintenance, which is why it has never thrived quite as well elsewhere as on the Piemontese slopes. Like its top contender, Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo takes kindly to its terroir, thus displaying the subtleties of its environment.
