Wine Bric Cenciurio, Barolo Coste di Rose, 2014
As far as seductive wines go, this Barolo ranks at the top of the list. With all the traditional Barolo characteristics that we have come to love and appreciate, this wine goes far beyond that. The intensity, depth and layers of flavor that this wine offers is outstanding.
Red - A seductive, premium Barolo wines that present depth, intensity, and a lingering finish.
Ruby-garnet red, pale, clear colour. This opens with aromas of rose petal, red berry and a hint of eucalyptus, new leather, and tobacco, with some floral character. The juicy palate delivers red cherry, cranberry and clove set against a backdrop of austere tannins and bright acidity.
This is a food wine to be enjoyed with grilled or BBQ'd red meats, aged cheese and Asian cuisine.
Nebbiolo, divided into three different types: Michet, Lampia and Rosè. The vineyards are in the municipality of Barolo on the border with Monforte d'Alba in the “Coste di Rose” sub-area. The soils of this area give rise to wines that are rich and savoury, restraint and rebellious in their youth but with a great ability to mature and improve over the years, revealing all the elegance of a great Barolo.
30 months in large Slovenian oak barrels, then 10 months in bottle before release.
