Taste: dry, robust but velvety, with a complex tannic texture and persistent finish.

Food matches: roasted red meats, braised meats, game, aged cheeses.

Serving advice: it is preferable to enjoy it in large glasses that promote oxygenation and enhance its aroma. A serving temperature of 18 ° C is recommended. Since it has been a Barolo for some time in the bottle, it may have a slight sediment so it is always advisable to decant.

Preservation method: Keep the bottles horizontally in rooms at a constant temperature as far as possible and away from light sources.
