Organoleptic Analysis: the Barolo is the best expression of the Nebbiolo vineyard cultivated in the Langa and has a faded rubin red colour in glass with a bit of deep red granat tone. The smelling features are many, austere and multi-faceted. The flower sensations mix with the typical scents of the vineyard; face powder and violet, red fruits and creaminess of durmast meet very well creating a pleasant, fresh and very complex mix.
Serving temperature: 18° C

On the palate it is first soft, rich and satisfying; the taste is very persistent and the sensations you feel are coherent with the smell: liquorice and violet develop elegantly on a strong, close tannic texture which is present from the first years and then gets better and softens to sweeter sensations with aging. It is a wine with aging potentials bigger than 20 years and which reflects very well the expression of the Monforte d’Alba area.
