The nose of Bolmida Barolo Le Costa di Monforte is baking spice, mocha and dark-skinned fruit emerge from the glass.
This wine boasts a magnificent garnet red colour with beautiful glints of ruby; legs with full and lingering tears draw to the fore its clarity.
The solid palate offers clove, dried Marasca cherry and roasted coffee bean alongside close-grained, rather astringent tannins.
Silvano Bolmida was born in the hills of the Langhe countryside and, after gaining ten years experience as winemaker in a historical winery in Barolo, he leased a few hectares from his father and his brother-in-law in order to make his own wine. Possessed of the kind of restlessly inquisitive mind that sets the great winemaker apart from the merely good, he devotes himself to an exhaustive – and to ordinary mortals surely an exhausting – micro-management of his vines and of the vinification and maturation of his wines.
Excellent with all kinds of food, but an ideal match in particular for game, roast and grilled meats. Outstanding with mature hard cheeses.
