Garnet-red in color with ruby reflections. Intense perfume with clean scent of roses, vanilla, licorice, spices and toasted oak.Gentle notes of absinth and tobacco.The flavour is full and elegant, good-bodied and austere with recurring olfactory sensations. The spicy note and the hints of wood blend perfectly.
With its big structure, this wine is particularly adapted to red meats, braised dishes and game in general. It is an ideal accompaniment for cheese and our typical local cuisine.
"Thanks to its sandy, well-draining soils, the Cannubi cru delivers delicate and elegant wines with refined and complex aromas. Violets, orange zest, Spanish cedar, smoke and wild berries all emerge from the nose of this deeply layered wine. You could pair this Barolo with white truffles and other equally delicate or aromatic foods."
"Blackberry and green tobacco aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with a firm, tight tannin structure and a fresh finish. Needs time to soften and open up. Best after 2012. 3,500 cases made. "
