Barolo D.O.C.G. “Bricco San Pietro”
Nebbiolo grapes 100%.
Aromas well centered on black and red fruit, sweet touches of cherry and more tense touches of blackberry and blueberry. A floral souvenir of violet.
Fresh and dry mouth, with a dense and precise tannin structure. Composed and not pretentious at all, an important wine.
With a properly cooked fillet goes without fail. Birds, a beautiful thrush or a good partridge, small game or a scalloped duck breast.
Service temperature: 18 °C
