Organoleptic Analysis: The Barolo of the municipality of Serralunga presents itself with a lively red with grenade shades.
The nose is rich, austere and deep. The dried violet and undergrowth notes, typical of Nebbiolo wine, and those balsamic ones of the territory of origin, are expressively balanced. The palate is warm, broad and full. The tannin is very present, soft and it extends pleasantly the mouthfeel. This wine is already pleasant now, but it will give you a good expression of Serralunga in the coming years.
Serving temperature: 18°C
