Barolo Monserra 2008 Raineri, Red wines

0,75 Litri











Barolo Monserra 2008 Raineri

Variety: Nebbiolo 100%

Vivid garnet red in various shades.

Intense, quality and elegant. Over ten years of aging, between wood and bottle, allow a sublime evolution to the nose. Now it’s really Barolo. We have dried flowers of violet, rose and ripe plum. The notes deriving from the woods in autumn are more pronounced, with moss, chestnuts, broken branches and grass, to name a few. There is no shortage of cinchona and rhubarb. Goudron notes given by the aging time begin to be present. The aromatic herbs do not disappear and are highlighted in the thyme, and savory. Notes of sweet and spicy spices are added. Excellent evolution for a wine that is perfect.

On the palate it makes no defects. Time rewards him, with still well-defined hardness and softness set to perfection. The sip is deep and creamy so as to be harmonious and balanced. Embellished with aromas of china, tobacco and spices.

Excellent vintage with a few years of aging it has come to be perfect to drink now. Raineri’s Monserra stands out for being an excellent one Barolo, fully corresponding to the cru (Perno a Monforte) to which it belongs.
