The dark red hue of this Barolo is underpinned by a near opaqueness in its clarity. The aroma explodes with a full bouquet of fresh cut violets, perfumed with vanilla and rose petal potpourri. Floral notes combine with bright red fruit of strawberries and plum, red raspberry and sour cherry. Rounding out the explosive aroma are earthy tones of clay and woods, tobacco and a hint of vanilla. The complexity does not stop at the nose! The palate carries on with ample fine tannins, powerful in body, with good tart cranberry acidity. Layers of red fruit, over cedar planks and oiled leather, with a nice graphite like stony finish. All of these flavors come together in beautiful balance in this exceptional Barolo.
This is a wonderful food wine! Pair with beef short ribs and creamy polenta, alongside herb rubbed lamb chops and truffled risotto, or with duck confit and roasted potatoes.
This high quality Barolo comes from the estate of enologist Beppe Ca’Viola, who has consulted for many large labels, and was named Enologist of the Year in 2002. Always valuing the terroir, the fruit, and the component of human touch on the making of wine, Beppe has accomplished this most flavorful Barolo, grown on the south facing, chalky soils outside of Novello. 30 days of maceration, fermentation with indigenous yeast, and three years in large casks, and the result is a wine that will continue to please long into the future.
