Terre da Vino Barolo 2008
Barolo is a great red wine with a venerable history, whose qualities were prized by the famous statesman Camillo Benso, Conte di Cavour. It is produced exclusively from the nebbiolo grape. The vineyards that yielded this particular Barolo lie in the best viticultural zones of the Grinzane Cavour, La Morra, and Castiglione Falletto communes, all in the province of Cuneo. Following a traditional fermentation and maceration, this Barolo is matured for 2 years in large oak barrels, where it develops the tannins and extractive compounds that will give it superb structure and enable it to age for many years.
Garnet-edged, rich ruby color. Pleasurable, generous, and evolved notes, with a hint of violets and dried rose petals. A dry, full, and robust palate; lean-structured and sinewy, but also smooth and harmonious.
