A bouquet that is elegant, intense, pervasive and lingering. Hints of wilted rose, autumn leaves, sweet tobacco and spices are clearly perceivable.
A wine with a beautiful colour of garnet red, with inviting ruby red reflections. Pervasive and lingering ‘church windows’ and tears accentuate its perfect clarity.
On the palate, it reveals a great structure, together with pleasing sensations of intense heat. A well orchestrated savoury flavour provides freshness, while sweetish tannins confer a note of interest. Its taste spectrum is enhanced by slight hints of chocolate, ripe fruit and spices. A wine of great balance, with the power to excite and satisfy the most discerning consumer.
Excellent with all kinds of food, but an ideal match in particular for game, roast and grilled meats. Outstanding with mature hard cheeses. Our vineyard, completely exposed to the midday sun, is set like a precious gem in this splendid wine-growing area of the Verduno municipal district. The Monvigliero hillside was already highly rated one hundred years ago by all Barolo producers.
