Technical Info

Food pairing

This wine finds its best matches at the table, with appetizers of sliced meats such as prosciutto or salami; also Alba beef tartare and vitello tonnato. The wine is also good with pasta, simple red meat dishes in general, or with seasoned cheeses.

Tasting notes

The nuanced, complex character of the 2012 vintage shows through in the 2012 Nebbiolo Langhe, and portends interesting things for the Barolo from this year. The nose is spicy with red fruits (cherries and raspberries) overlaid by a delicate bouquet of rose. This wine shows the noble character of the main source for the grapes: Bricco Boschis. In the mouth, there is plenty of ripe tannin and good freshness to harmonize with the fruit. The finish is of moderate persistence and the wine shows a harmonious balance in the mouth. (May 2015)
