Tenuta Cucco Barolo Cerrati 2012:
This Barolo, from the Cerrati cru vineyard, has an intense aroma that makes it an ideal meditation wine. The floral hints of eglantine are accompanied by a touch of mint and thyme.
A bright ruby red colour with an orange rim.
The fruity elements of cherry and freshly pressed blackcurrants emerge, followed by overtones of undergrowth and mushroom.
The wine remains for 12 months in small barrels of French oak and after that, it completes its ageing process in traditional barrels for a further 12 months, until it reaches its peak of well-balanced savour. It is then transferred to bottles, where it matures for at least 6 months before being sold.
A wine with an intense personality, ideal with flavoursome meat dishes and game in general, or with cooked curd cheeses.
