Barolo 2012 Monserra Magnum Raineri

Variety: Nebbiolo 100%

Iridescent garnet red.

Not only time, but also space. Together with the long aging, the larger format grants a wonderful development to the aromas of withered violet, forest in autumn, with fallen leaves and musk. The porcini mushrooms, and the ripe plum. Some aromatic herbs, and gentle spice notes. Complex and numerous, they are also distinguished by their class.

On the palate it is Powerful, for the volume expressed, but also solid in its hardness. The tannins are proud spokespersons, although they are more refined in their ways. The minerality and acidity reaffirm the concept, for a balanced and harmonious Barolo. From the palate aromas of fruit and balsamic essences reach the nose.

Overall it is really a great Barolo, perfect to drink now, despite being able to improve for another 10 years.

Accurately accompanies an infinite number of traditional Piedmontese and Ligurian dishes. Bù di Carrù boiled meat, stewed rabbit in terracotta pot with thyme and Taggiasca olives, Fassona rib, foiade with hare ragu and red lentils with onion, celery, cherry tomatoes from Pachino and Etna red peppers .
