Barolo D.O.C.G. “Monforte D’Alba”
Nebbiolo grapes 100%.
Vitality in color, an exemplary garnet.
The fruit is red, small and ripe. Juicy black cherry, red currant and acid blueberry. Gentle and ethereal perfume. Cinnamon and a touch of tobacco.
The mouth is enveloping and tense, the tannin gives the right seriousness, while the finish leaves elegant and rich flavors.
Beef tartare or veal beat with truffle. But also with stews and game cooking.
Service temperature: 18 °C
