The geographic area of the Nebbiolo grapes of this structured and persistent Barolo are limited to the town of Barolo and ten other nearby communities. Elegant and refined, this wine is pleasantly tannic and structured with hints of berries, licorice, and coffee.

PAIRINGS
Though Barolo is often enjoyed as a tasting wine on it's own, it pairs well with heavier meat and can also accompany dessert pastries.
