Barolo is known as the 'King of Red Wine', deliciously deep and ruby red and made from 100% Nebbiolo Barolo grapes. Our Barolo is produced in Piemonte by pioneering Barolo producers, Cavalloto, and it is their flagship wine. Natural and organic, this 2012 Barolo was scored 91/100 by Wine Searcher who collate scores and awards from the world's top palates. The 100 point scale is the most common way of scoring wine and a score between 90 and 94 signifies an 'Outstanding wine of superior character and style'.
Cavalloto's Barolo is soft, sensual, intense and inviting, full bodied and warm. It has characteristic aromas of red and black cherries, with summer herbs, anise and penetrating floral notes. In the mouth, the nuanced flavours of cherries, raspberries and hints of eucalyptus combine with a balanced yet subtle tannic structure. The after taste is long and spicy, with mineral and berry flavours.
This wine pairs well with prosciutto, salami, red meat, grilled fish and also hard or aged cheeses. It is also wonderful with desserts made with dark chocolate and is considered an excellent 'Vino da meditazione' or meditation wine - it can be enjoyed all by itself.
