Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Riserva 2011

Grape variety:
Nebbiolo 100%

The grapes come from vineyards made up of soil that is particularly rich in clay and limestone and looks like “White Lands”. This type of compact, waterproof soil forces the vine roots to grow deep in the soil profile to find water. As a result, the vine produces loosely-packed bunches with small berries that give the wine a high content of mineral nutrients and tannins and ensure a long life.

In order to enhance its richness and allow the various components to blend perfectly for a fully-expressed, long-lasting wine, Barolo Riserva ages three years in the traditional large Slavonian oak barrels, which contribute to making this wine harmonious and balanced and to enhancing the elegance of the bouquet. Barolo Riserva completes its fining in the bottle and can go onto the market only after about 6 years from harvest. Its peak condition is after it reaches 30 years of age.

The color is deep garnet red, which is gradually permeated with orange reflections over the years. The nose is intense with distinct traces of violet, rose and spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, which, over time, evolve into aromas of tobacco, leather, truffle. The taste is elegant, dry and austere as well as velvety, harmonious, and intense. Its tannins are abundant, fully-expressed yet soft and pleasant.

Food pairings:
Barolo Riserva is the ideal companion for egg pasta, ravioli and tajarin with tasty sauces such as ragout and truffles, red meats, roasted or braised meats and game. It pairs beautifully with sheep and goat’s milk cheeses and mildly-seasoned cheeses. Enjoying this wine at the end of the meal with a tea biscuit makes for a curious combination. When aged for a long time, it is a magnificent meditation wine.
