Aurelio Settimo Barolo 2016
Drink now or cellar for up to 15 years.
Decant for 2 hours
Intense garnet with purple flashes, this vintage drinks great now and has a very long life ahead of it still. The palate offers a full bodied, well balanced wine with fine tannin and great acidity. The fruit is ripe with the cherries, plum and raspberries all intense and a more subtle spice and vanilla note coming through. There are also hints of chocolate, mocha, and the buttery effect of the oak maturation. The finish is long and ends with the cinnamon and vanilla notes coming through.
A truly great wine that is perfect with steak, game, venison, paté and strong cheese.
At Aurelio Settimo only the very best wines are produced and carry the DOC and DOCG status for red wines. Vinification follows traditional methods with long fermentations on the skins (15-20 days) which draws maximum colour and tannin into the wine. This is then matured in large oak casts that typically hold between 2,500 and 3,500 litres for two years prior to bottling.
