100% from Pernanno Cru in Castilgione Falletto from the epic 2019 vintage. A wine which shares the red fruited character of its stabelmate the Rocche but more structural & ageworthy, the real stayer in the Monchiero stable. This will age gracefully over the next 2 decades or more.

Excellent fragrant lift on the nose with orange zest, dried flowers, tea leaves, peaches, sandalwood, fresh figs and a sprinkling of nutmeg. Dry iron-rich fruit on the palate textured with furry tannins, perhaps somewhat lighter than the average Barolo, but with gorgeous fruit purity that lingers on the finish.

Often referred to as the king of red grapes, Nebbiolo is responsible for some of the greatest wines in the world. The regions of Barbaresco and Barolo, in Piedmont, Italy, create the most revered expressions of the variety and have set the benchmarks for the world over. Nebbiolo is quite light in colour, dry and delicate but packs a punch in aroma and flavour with notes of rose, tar, cherry, red berries, blood orange, licorice, leather, terracotta and earthy herbals. These wines have high acidity and high tannins, making them extremely age worthy that deepen in complexity over decades. Simply stunning wines!
