The taste of Marchesi di Barolo is full and elegant, with soft tannins. The spicy and the woody aromas blend perfectly.
Fermentation takes placeat a controlled temperature in thermo-conditioned tanks. Maceration lasts for 8 days. During this time, the wine is regularly recycled from the bottom to the top of the tank so that the must takes onall the trace elements present in the skins and delicately extracts the color.
Initially the wine ages in small oak barrels, then it is blended in the traditional large Slavonian oak barrels, which contribute to making this wine harmonious and balanced and to enhancing the bouquet’s elegance. The wine completes its ageing in the bottle for some months before going onto the market. Barolo reaches maturity 4 years after being harvested and the peak condition is between 4 and 20 years.
Rich, dry and deep in flavor, Barolo is an excellent accompaniment to red meats, braised and game. It is ideal accompaniment foraged cheeses, not too spicy.
