Giacomo Borgogno Barolo Fossati 2014

Born in our youngest vineyard, one that from 2008 gives floral and fruity aromas in Barolo Borgogno: Fossati, in the municipality of Barolo. grows for at least four years in the smaller casks (so to speak!) that are able to enhance the typical grapes from Nebbiolo. It means an elegant wine, fragrant, balanced, soft and round, which suggests it might be different our earth.

Colour

Ruby turning to garnet.

Bouquet

Empyreumatic scents distinguish the opening of a rich and complex olfactory range. This is followed by notes of cherry jam, carcadè, mint tea and star anise.

Flavour

Silky and pulpy on the palate, it shows a fruity crunchiness supported by freshness and a well-structured texture. Final balsamic. Persistent. Authoritative.

Pairing

Meat
Game
Cheese
Matured cheese
Pork
