Wine tasting notes

A fabulous single vineyard from the Roddi commune (one of smallest areas for Barolo production more famous for its truffle hunting dog training centre) that averages 30 years old and benefits from a southerly exposure. Svelte velvety fruit tannins underscore the crisp, bursting black cherry juiciness, with touches of blueberry, bilberry, bramble and complex savoury notes of dry stone.

Food matching

Master Sommelier Vincent Gasnier, in his book How to Choose Wine, recommends this as a great wine for dishes containing black truffles, as well as for roast pork, among other roast meats. He especially likes it with chicken cacciatore. According to Malcolm Gluck and Mark a great match is braised goose in red wine.
