The Vietto Barolo Panerole Magnum nose reveals a clear ample scent with notes of violet, licorice, cinnamon, and sweet tobacco.
Vivid bright red color with slight orange-colored reflexes.
On the palate, it is full, harmonic, warm, with a pleasant and spicy finish.
Manual grape harvest in crates, crushing, de-stemming and fermentation “a cappello emerso” with daily pump-overs, prolonged maceration, besides fermentation for 30 – 35 days, after the racking off, it is decanted various times to prepare the wine for the malolactic fermentation and within December the aging process in wood begins and, in this case, lasts at least three years. After the bottling, that takes place in summer, the wine evolves in the bottle, for another 18 months before entering the market.
An important wine, with great character and longevity. It accompanies meat-based second courses or well-aged and mountain pastured cheeses.
The Vietto Barolo Panerole Magnum 2011 is a good choice for wine lovers.
