Country of Origin: Italy - Piemonte
Grape Variety: 100% Nebbiolo
Food Pairing: It is the ideal companion for egg pasta, tajarin and ravioli with tasty condiments such as game ragout and truffles; roasted or braised red meats, game and venison. It goes wonderfully with sheep's and goat's milk cheeses or mature hard cheeses. It is curious if paired, at the end of a meal, with dry pastries. Aged for a long time, it is a wine for meditation.
Decanting Times: 4 hours
Winemaking: In order to enhance its richness and allow the various components to blend perfectly for a fully-expressed, long-lasting wine, Barolo Riserva ages three years in the traditional large Slavonian oak barrels, which contribute to making this wine harmonious and balanced and to enhancing the elegance of the bouquet. Barolo Riserva completes its fining in the bottle and can go onto the market only after about 6 years from harvest. Its peak condition is after it reaches 30 years of age.
Tasting Notes: The color is deep garnet red, which is gradually permeated with orange reflections over the years. The nose is intense with distinct traces of violet, rose and spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, which, over time, evolve into aromas of tobacco, leather, truffle. The taste is elegant, dry and austere as well as velvety, harmonious, and intense. Its tannins are abundant, fully-expressed yet soft and pleasant.
