Here is the undisputed king of the Piedmontese winemaking tradition: Barolo.
Loved, sought after and desired all over the world, Barolo represents all the values of the Piedmontese tradition.
Barolo Bricco San Biagio comes from the historic Nebbiolo vineyard, located in the heart of the San Biagio hill and represents one of the best mentions of Barolo production, within the Municipality of La Morra. The particular concave conformation of the hilly slope allows to capture the heat and keep it overnight.
The aging takes place in French oak barrels for a period of not less than 30 months. A 1 year maturation in the bottle follows, during which the tannins soften, the floral and fruity notes grow, widening: thus the Barolo Bricco San Biagio is born.
The color is intense garnet red with a tendency to more mature shades, with age. The nose is complex. We can distinguish the scents of small fruits and dog rose, cedar, jam, cooked plum. In the more refined wines, the spicy and balsamic notes are suggestive, in particular the star anise, the aromas of licorice, mushrooms and dried figs, with references to tobacco and leather. In the mouth it is striking for its gustatory complexity, for the spicy, balsamic notes, for the sweetness of the tannins always well in evidence. Pleasant sensations of licorice, tobacco and goudron in the finish.
Like Barbaresco, it goes admirably with dishes rich in flavors and tastes of Piedmontese cuisine, as it is found in the most refined combinations of international cuisine.
