Wine gift set: elegant old-vine Barolo wine from La Morra in wooden presentation box

The wine

2016 is undoubtedly the best one vintage of this decade. This wine is an excellent example of Barolo from La Morra – full of flavour and elegance. La Morra is one of the most prized villages in Barolo. Paolo Demarie’s vineyard has off-white soils, rich in blue-grey marls. All of the grapes come from a single vineyard, made up of 50 years-old vines. These old vines tend to produce fewer grapes, but they’re better quality.

Tasting notes

In the glass, this Barolo has a medium garnet colour. It offers a pronounced aroma of black plum, red cherry, wild rose and liquorice, underpinned by notes of vanilla, cinnamon and black pepper. This is complemented by hints of dark chocolate, prune, and meat. In the mouth, the wine is dry, with medium acidity and powerful tannins – as you’d expect from a Barolo of this age. Each sip tastes like plums and dried figs, cinnamon and chocolate, leading into a long finish.

The Presentation Box

This gift box is coated with a clear matt varnish to protect and highlight the natural character of the wood. It’s stamped with the Independent Wine insignia, in contrasting red, and closes with a metal latch. It’s made from timber sourced exclusively from sustainable producers. Each box is certified by The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) – an international non-profit organisation that promotes responsible management of the world’s forests – and is stamped with the FSC logo.
