Winemaker's Notes:

What an amazing price for a Barolo! This 100% Nebbiolo from Piedmont would grace any cellar. Its a deep garnet color. Soft, harmonious and velvety with lingering bouquet. Well rounded, and not too tannic. Recommended with hearty roasts, stews, game and other red meats.

"Aromas of pure, sweet fruit and very ripe pomegranates. The palate is balanced, with great ripe fruit over pure acidity and lively, vibrant red flavors. This is a great fruity wine, with crisp acidity and wood flavors to finish."
