Barolo Docg Margheria

Tasting characteristics

Appearance: deep garnet red.
Bouquet: ethereal, featuring spicy, tobacco and brushwood notes; there are also important mineral notes.
Flavour: classic and nicely harmonious wine, tannic when young and with considerable ageing potential, making it an unmistakable “Nebbiolo of Serralunga”.

 

It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C.

 
An important wine, it encapsulates all the history of our land and fully expresses its talents when served with rich dishes, such as roast red meats or game stew. It is also excellent with medium-mature and mature cheeses.
