Warm and mature nose with notes of jam, raspberry, licorice, cherry and camphor.
Intense garnet red color.
Cordero Barolo Gattera has a soft mouth of remarkable structure with fine tannins and persistence.
From a 1 hector single vineyard in the municipality of La Morra. Situated at the foot of a centenary Lebanese Cedar tree, on the highest South/West slope of Gattera cru. Old vines at 300 meters above sea level in rich and clay soil provide an ideal maturation for an austere and complex Barolo.
Aged slowly for 19-21 months in small French oak barriques.
An aristocratic wine that finds its ideal match in game, jugged hare, braised beef, chamois, roe deer, wild boar, venison, and pigeon. Superb with dishes garnished with white truffles from Alba, like cardoon flan with fondue and duck ravioli. Age-worthy wine that evolves slowly and continually in the bottle. Tremendous expression can be expected over decades. Timeless.
