Barolo D.o.c.g. 2010 comes from the Gramolere vinyards, among the beautiful Langhe hills. Considered as “the king of wines”, it is a well structured red wine, also because of its ability to improve over time.
Produced only using Nebbiolo grapes, this wine is red garnet in colour with orange nuances.
Let it breath for at least one hour before the tasting and serve it in the right glass called “balloon” at a middle temperature of 18 degrees. Through the rotation of the wine in the glass we can clearly notice how thick it is, looking at the “tears” on the “balloon” (due to the amount of alcohol).
The aroma is clean and intense, fruity and slightly spicy, because of its stay in “Allier” barrel.
The taste has a good body, dry, well sapid with a bitter ending. It is warm (14.5 of alcohol) and well balanced in tannin/acid level.
Even if we can consider it as a wine “ready” to drink, do not forget that it has a good longevity that makes it better in taste and structure over years.
The Barolo is perfect when combined with tasty red meat dishes such as roasts,
boiled meat, wild boar , braised duck or roasted kid.
It is also good as an aperitif or as a sipping wine served with wild boar or barolo salami or with strong cheese like the castelmagno or the piedmontese toma.
Joe, torinese D.o.c., annata 1981, si appassiona fin da giovanissima
alle gioie del palato scoprendo, grazie ai nonni, il buon vino e la cucina della sua terra.
Amante della buona compagnia, preferisce coltivare ed intrattenere i suoi affetti intorno ad una tavola sostanziosa, che sia quella della piola o dell'osteria più raffinata oppure, meglio ancora, se di casa propria.
Si diletta volentieri in cucina, sperimentando sempre nuovi e originali accostamenti enogastronomici.
Nel 2006, data la profonda passione per la Vitis Vinifera e la sua linfa, decide di diventare un Sommelier presso l'Associazione
F.i.s.a.r., in parole povere, beve e studia per quasi due anni fino al conseguimento del diploma finale, ottenuto fieramente in seguito a lunghe ed estenuanti degustazioni.
Joe is from Turin, Italy. She started loving good wine and food since she was very young, discovering the joys of the palate, thanks to her grandparents.
She has always liked entertaining friends and her loved ones around a well stocked table, full of delicious dishes.
She is pretty happy in the kitchen as she likes trying new and original eno-gastonomical pairings.
In 2006, due to her deep love for wines, she became a Sommelier (wine taster) with the "F.i.s.a.r". association.
In short, she studied hard and drank wines for two years in a row until she got the final diploma, obtained after long and exhausting tastings.
