Monastero Barolo Perno 2010
Very open, fragrant, appealing wine with a powerful, yet well-balanced bouquet. It has a pervasive nose showing hints of roses, raspberries and underbrush, slight vanilla and liquorice overtones, and notes of amaretto and tobacco.
Deep, bright ruby red in colour.
On the palate it is full-bodied, with tannins that are very dense and biting, yet never aggressive, showing the wine's considerable breadth and consistency.
It makes a perfect match for meat and game, and its fragrance is set off perfectly by typical Piedmontese-style antipasti.
