Tenuta Cucco Barolo Serralunga 2012
A Barolo with a classic bouquet coming from the vine variety and the soil. It has hints of withered rose, undergrowth, prunes, liquorice and spices.
A bright ruby red colour with an orange rim.
Fresh wine with a tart component and tannins sustaining a good structure. The aromas are elegant, with a good intensity. The fruit is sweet, with more evolved sensations echoing tobacco and dried herbs.
A wine of marked youthful exuberance, left to age for 24 months in traditional 25-hectolitre barrels where the maturing process brings out its elegance. It then sits in bottles for 6-12 months before being sold.
Its full-bodied flavour makes it ideal for red meats and feathered game, particularly when braised.
