Barolo Brunate 2017 Claudio Boggione

Variety: Nebbiolo 100%

Organic Green Experience.

Ruby red color with garnet shadows.

Intense and exciting, like all the great Barolo. The aromas are of ripe stem fruit, violet, forest, and aromatic herbs. Some spices, and the classic white peach. China and rhubarb make it even more complex. In addition to the quantity, the excellent quality of the scents should be rewarded.

On the palate it has an excellent volume, the result of a largely sunny vintage. However, the hardness is certainly not long in coming, and with a nice texture of tannins, and minerality, they balance the palate. Remarkable depth and persistence for a return of plum and cherry aromas in alcohol.

Hot vintage, which has brought well ripe fruit, consequently exuberant Baroli and Barbareschi ready in advance.
