WINERY NOTES: "Source Vines/Vineyards: MGA Bricco Boschis – Nebbiolo for Barolo 100% coming from the parcels of Colle Sud Ovest, Vigna Punta Marcello and Vigna San Giuseppe. Characteristics of the wine: Vinification: fermented with indigenous yeasts, macerated with submerged cap for 20-35 days. Ageing: Traditional in Slavonian Oak Casks for 3-3.5 years. Bottle Ageing: 6-12 months before release into the market. Organoleptic Characteristics: Optimal structure but with already-soft tannins, and with an open, intense perfume that gives this Barolo characteristics of both power and great elegance. Complex and fragrant, can be enjoyed young but has great aging potential. Gastronomic Accompaniment: This wine finds its best matches at the table, with first courses of prosciutto, salami, Alba beef tartare and vitello tonnato. The wine is best with second courses of red meat in general, but also grilled fish or white meats, or with hard and aged cheeses. Desserts with dark chocolate are also a good match, or it can be enjoyed as a “vino da meditazione” (a wine for meditation) by itself."
Limited stock - maximum two bottles per customer (until larger stock available).
