DESCRIPTION
  • Barolo DOCG for under $40? Unheard of? Well, you better believe it, because we have one right here and the wine is bloody delicious too. Made from Nebbiolo grapes, this magnificent red, known as “the king of wines and the wine of kings" is a showpiece of Piedmontese wine-making. A wine for big occasions, it charms and win over the palate with its power and body, leaving a lovely sensation of warmth. Garnet red with orange highlights, it has an intense, ethereal, characteristic bouquet together with a full-bodied dry taste which is rich, smooth and well-balanced. A superior wine, at its very best with roasts and game.
