Barolo is probably Piedmont's most famous wine and is made from the capricious Nebbiolo grape variety that needs careful handling. After fermentation it spends a full three years maturing in Slavonian oak casks which gives it a full and firm character. This is a classic combination of mature, lightly floral aromas combined with richness and structure. The dark plum, leather and delicate violet aromas, plus notes of woodsmoke and brown spice among the flavours. It's all balanced by ripe tannins, complex savoury notes and a long finish. This is a wine that can drink now or be aged for another 5+ years!
