Cellar for up to 11 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

Set at the foot of Serralunga d’Alba’s stunning 14th century castle, Tenuta Cucco is named after the “cucco” or summit which is the estate’s oldest vineyard. The property is known for its exceptional terroir in the most ancient part of Barolo, with the hillside vineyards providing perfectly-balanced fruit with plenty of perfume and freshness. Conditions here are ideal for ripening the Nebbiolo grapes and refining the variety’s naturally high tannins.

This classic Barolo is a great example of the Tenuta Cucco style with plenty of youthful exuberance despite its maturity. Following the harvest the grapes are vinified and the wine is then aged in traditional 25-hectolitre barrels for 24 months. After bottling the wine then spends another 12 months maturing in the bottle before it is ready for release.

Dried rose, plum, licorice and spice define the expressive and intensive nose while the first sip offers a generous full body, firm tannins, and a well-developed structure. The rich fruit character on the palate is carefully balanced by savoury notes and a streak of freshness, culminating in a long, refined finish with hints of tobacco and dried herbs. A great wine to pair with red meat, game, or even hearty stews.
