Cellar for up to 13 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

The story of the Parusso estate dates back to 1901 when Gaspare Parusso bought his very first plot in Mariondino. A couple of decades later the family also purchased the Rovella farmhouse in Bussia which is the current location of the winery. Today the Parusso estate has some 22 hectares of vines spread across the Barolo region, including some top Barolo cru sites like Le Coste, Mariondino and Mosconi.

This powerhouse Barolo is crafted from 40 year old vines grown in the hamlet of Mariondino at around 300 metres of altitude. The vineyard itself faces west and is named “Söri d’la Seira” in the Langhe dialect since it receives the very last rays before the sun goes down. The grapes are carefully harvested by hand in small baskets once ripe and then macerated and fermented for an extended period using indigenous yeasts.

Once the young wine is ready it is then transferred to small oak barrels for 24 months of maturation, followed by another 6 months in the bottle itself. This lengthy ageing process adds extra complexity and polish to the wine as well as subtle hints of spice, woodsmoke and leather to the rich dark cherry and berry notes and characteristic rose petal aroma which is so typical of the Nebbiolo variety. This is a great Barolo to keep in the cellar for a few more years, or to enjoy now alongside hearty meat stews, barbecued ribs, or a prime ribeye steak.
