Giordano, Barolo DOCG 2014, Piedmont, Italy

Tasting Note: A classic Barolo done in a medium-throttle style that delivers fully on nebbiolo’s promise.

Medium-intensity ruby in color with some garnet around the edges, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of red cherry, fresh strawberry and pomegranate with notes of cranberry.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied Barolo has medium-intensity, red-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and supple, medium tannin.

There are punctuated moments of complexity on the midpalate that ultimately completes with a satisfying, medium finish.

Pair with food as all Barolo should be.

Bottle Note: Born from Nebbiolo grapes grown on the Piemonte hills. According to tradition, it ages patiently for at least 38 months. Garnet red, intense bouquet, complex, medium bodied, elegant tannins, with a long bitter cherry finish. Serve at 18°-20°C with meat dishes and matured cheese.
