A wine of great class which ages well, of a brilliant garnet red with distinctive orange tinges which intensify with age; of an intense and persistent fragrance, of full austere and velvety flavour, rightly tannic, with a lingering “goudron” and spicy final taste. Derived from the Nebbiolo grapes from the Costa Grimaldi vineyard owned by the Einaudi estate, facing Barolo in the Terlo area. The alcohol content is between 13.5 and 14.5% vol. with tannic characteristics which guarantee a life in bottle of up to 25-30 years in the best years. With time it acquires complexity as the ethereal aromas of spices, truffles and leather substitute the fruitiness of the first years of its life.
Brilliant garnet red with distinctive orange tinges
Dark cherries, menthol, spices and minerals are some of the nuances that emerge as this structured Barolo opens up in the glass. The wine offers a final blossom of menthol and sweet spices on the long, refined finish.
Full bodied but smooth tannic taste, with a long spicy finish.
