BARBARESCO RISERVA RONGALIO

D.O.C.G.

A wine produced only in the best vintages using grapes from the oldest vines of the Rocche Meruzzano vineyard, an outstanding area in terms of exposition, microclima and soil. Ruby-red, with a rich, complex, highly elegant bouquet revealing layers of violets, plums and cherries, cinnamon, pepper and liquorice, topped by tobacco and white truffles. Its dry, well-balanced flavour starts out firm and smooth, and packed with stuffing, becoming gradually more elegant and harmonious with a lingering finish. A wine with a very long cellar life. Best served at a temperature of 16-18°C
