Terre del Barolo - Barolo

Barolo is not just one of Italy's most famous names, but recognized globally as a magnificent appellation for world-class wines. A co-op established in 1958 by a commanding officer in the Resistance, Terre del Barolo has a high reputation and almost 400 members. Terre del Barolo proudly labels itself 'a family of smallholders', based in Castiglione Falleto (perhaps Piemont's mos picturesque hilltop towns) and devoted to producing top quality Barolo wines. They are committed to making natural wines with organic farming practices, as the names of their wines - Biologico, Le Rondini ('the Swallows'), and Le Terre attest. Barolo is not a casual sipping wine! Made from the Nebbiolo grape, it possesses brisk acidity, somewhat fierce tannins, and plenty of body. Scents of dried flowers, plum and cherry fruit, licorice and a classic note of tar adorn the nose. The flavours are similar, with high raspy acidity, very chewy firm tannins and a long finish that has a bite. What you need to do is bite some great savoury food, like cured meat, aged parmigiano reggiano, osso buco, or risotto with mushrooms. This wine is transformed by food! Of course the 2012 has ageing potential; but the balance and integration that make it age-worthy also make it irresistible now. This is an outstanding value for Barolo.
