Note

Barolo D.O.C.G. classico occupies an outstanding role for our estate. With this wine, we wish to propose a bottle of the very highest level!

Tasting characteristics

Appearance: garnet red colour with variable intensity depending on the vintage

Bouquet: the grapes come from different subzones in Serralunga and this gives them a broad and variable spectrum of perfumes, ranging from tempting spicy notes to those of a sweeter, floral and fruity nature

Flavour: a variety of sensations, with a full-bodied, classic and well structured wine which ages well and perfectly represents the important character of our land

It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C

It achieves its best expression when served with red meats, particularly game, and with dishes dressed with truffle. It is also excellent with fresh egg pasta and meat sauce, and with risotto, as well as medium-mature cow’s milk and goat’s milk cheeses
