Powerful and fresh Barolo Riserva in individual black box – the perfect gift for a true connoisseur

This masculine and sharp Barolo Riserva is from the Castelletto cru in Monforte d’Alba. This wine is one of nine Barolos that won the Tre Bicchieri award in 2020. It’s presented in exclusive black gift box and is the perfect gift for a true enthusiast or collector.

The price includes the wine and the gift box.

The vineyard in the Castelletto cru is planted on the eastern side of the ridge separating Monforte d’Alba and Serralunga. It faces south-south-east – sori del mattino – so vines see more of the morning sun. The soil is light in colour, ranging from yellow to white. This geological foundation, called the Lequio formation, is the oldest of the Barolo zone, that formed 12 million years ago in the Serravalian age. It consists of layers of clay and sandstone, rich in sand and calcium carbonate, and is known to produce the most powerful, austere and long-ageing Barolos.

Tasting notes: Medium garnet colour in the glass. This wine is bursting with aromas of fresh cranberry and powerful, enveloping notes of red rose, liquorice and fruit candies. This is complemented by hints of forest floor, tar, and a delicate touch of cedar wood from careful – though very long – oak ageing. While this Riserva is already magical in the glass, it’s still developing, and the strong tannins will continue to evolve over time. You could drink it now, but remember that it will continue to evolve the longer you hold it.

Ageing potential: 20 years
