This is a rarity: is a Barolo best-buy from Cantine Terre di Barolo and it delivers classic Nebbiolo power and strength for your next robust, meaty dinner.
This is an outstanding value for Barolo. Cantine del Barolo is a co-operative of some 400 hundred growers who farm 650 hectares in the Lange Hills of Piemonte. Established in 1958 by a commanding officer in the Resistance, it’s a co-op with a solid reputation. Intense cherry fruit, earthy pungency, and a lovely fragrance of fresh violets are interwoven on the nose and palate, but the key to this wine is the silky texture that lingers through the finish and makes it a pleasure to drink. As expected, the acid and tannins are Nebbiolo-fierce, so the Piemontese serve this with braised beef and mushrooms on creamy polenta, and you should try that too.
