Roero DOCG Sergentin 2011 - Fabrizio Battaglino

September 2, 2011

On the beautiful Roero hills in the province of Cuneo, Fabrizio Battaglino produces a very good wine: the Roero d.o.c.g. Sergentin 2011.

This wine, made using Nebbiolo grapes, is red ruby in colour, very intense with light garnet shades (due to the aging in barrels). It has a typical berry perfume with floreal and spicy hints such as violet and vanilla.

This prelude of delicious fragrances brings us to discover an involving taste too, very smooth, intense, fruity with blackberries and currants hints, perfectly tannic and with a nice grassy, bitter final.

Its full bodied structure (because of its stay in “Allier” barrels for 18 months) and its alcohol level (14 degrees) allow us to combine it to tasty pasta dishes with truffle or ragù sauce or meal based on red meat such as braised, stews, roasts, boiled or game.

If you are not fond of meat you can always have it with strong cheese like the piedmontese Toma or Testun.

Serve it at a temperature of 16-18 degrees after breathing previously for about 30 minutes.

Enjoy it!
