A magnificent illustration of wines which age well, this Barolo is a monument of complexity and freshness. More info

Roberto Giacomo produces this wine by leaving the Nebbiolo grape to undergo its alcoholic fermentation in old wooden vats. The subsequent long élevage (4 years) has left the wine with very good potential for keeping. It would benefit very well from a few years' laying down to bring out its full structure and silkiness, enhanced with mineral notes.

Barolo DOCG Cascina Francia serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Faisan au chou, Filet d'agneau rôti, Foie de veau.
