There´s a harmony of flavours in which the fresh and sapid side prevails on the softness. Aromas are not yet complex but herald seductive hints of blonde tobacco and young violet.
The wine has a striking garnet, ruby red color with subtle orange reflections.
A classy and pure Barolo, never aggresive but graceful with a nice drinkability. As per all 2011 from Marziano Abbona Barolo labels, despite the summer heat, in the mouth it shows both a good acidity and warmness brought by the alcohol around 15%.
Made from grapes cultivated in Perno, a village between Monforte and Serralunga d’Alba, this Barolo has a wonderful elegance to its bouquet, good strength, and excellent alcohol.
Marziano Abbona Barolo is an elegant partner for roasts, game, stews, and well aged cheeses. To fully appreciate this wine it deserves to be served in large glasses.
