Barolo Villero 2016 Livia Fontana

Variety: Nebbiolo 100%

Ruby red color with orange reflections.

The nose is intense, elegant, clean, in short, of the highest class. It spreads out among the scents of flowers and fruits, woods and roots, spices and more. Violet, red plum and black cherry. Notes of cinchona and rhubarb, and aromatic herbs. Precisely the latter are beautiful and seductive. From there the colors of the forest open up, with the facets that make it up.

Overall, the aromas confirm the expectations of the Cru to which they belong.

On the palate it is conspicuous, with freshness, verticality and a very happy tannic texture. The sum of softness is adequate and copious, so as to make the wine already harmonious and in balance. From the palate the aromas of china and aromatic herbs make their way to the nose.

Excellent interpretation of Villero by Michele Fontana. If left in the cellar for a few years, it will become something to remember.

Awarded by Doctor Wine di Cernilli with 98 cents and by the French Guide Gilbert & Gaillard with 97 cents
