Pira Barolo Marenca 2012
The nose is fresh, with complex perfumes that range from wild berries to vanilla, chocolate and aromatic herbs.
Intense garnet red colour.
On the palate it is very vigorous, rich in extracts, with lively and pleasant tannins that are rounded through a skilful use of wood. A powerful, tantalizing wine with a great ageing potential.
The wine-making process of Barolo Marenca takes place in horizontal fermentation tanks with temperature control for 12-15 days. The wine matures over 24 moths, partly in small wooden barrels and partly in large wooden barrels.
Braised and roast red meats, game, dishes served with truffles, hard and mature cheeses. It´s best to open the wine at least two hours before serving to allow it to breathe.
