Organoleptic Characteristics, Preservation

With a ruby-red colour, the Barolo has a rich bouquet which gradually recalls the scents of roses flows, truffles and wood spice. The palate is at first elegant and refined, then is begins to gain in complexity with air. The long flavours predict a prominent future ahead. Serving recommended in large glasses at a temperature of 17-18°C.
