Barolo Brunate 2012 Magnum Claudio Boggione, Red wines











Barolo Brunate 2012 Magnum Claudio Boggione

Variety: Nebbiolo 100%

Organic Green Experience.

Light ruby red color with large garnet areas.

On the nose, aromas of immense class and extreme elegance stand out. It leaves the taster no doubt that he is in front of a great Barolo. The notes of flowers, spices and ripe fruit stand out. The china stands out in the outline, with the scents of porcini mushrooms and moss floating safely. But it is not satisfied, because it has the power to change, and awaiting it, it also grants white peach and fine notes of wild berries. Complex nose of a great Barolo.

On the palate it stands out for the balance of the parts. Dense, but composed and gentle are the tannins, with acidity and minerality to further support. The sip is creamy and deep. It is pleasantly elongated between aromas of plum and rhubarb.

Excellent vintage, which gave well ripe fruit, but at the same time rich in acidity, as a result Baroli and Barbareschi full-bodied with a great aging prospect.
