Belcolle Barolo DOCG Riserva 2012

A unique Barolo Riserva 10 Anni which is Luca Bosio's tribute to his wife Valentina and their 10 wedding anniversary. The color is intense garnet red with a hint of brown hues. The aroma is intense and typical of the Nebbiolo grape with complex aromas of dark cherries, violets, hot spices, tar and truffles. The taste is dry and full-bodied with velvety tannins. The aftertaste is long and harmonious. Enjoy the wine with meat dishes, such as long-braised beef brisket or ripe cheeses. Pour it at 18 - 20 degrees.

92 points, James Suckling "A mature Barolo with aromas and flavors of balsamic-tinged berry and currant fruit, truffle-like dried mushroom and marmelade. Medium-to full-bodied with integrated tannins. What hits you about this is fresh, minerally character that overrides the more decadent fruit character. Plenty of life here. This will continue to age well."

100% Nebbiolo. 14% abv.
