Why we love this
A delicate and elegant natural Barolo at a great price. This vibrant Nebbiolo weaves together sensations of violets, bright red berries, forest floor, leather, sweet spices and balsamic notes. The finesse and purity of fruit are supported by silky tannins.
The crushed grapes ferment naturally with their yeasts and without added sulphur for about a month and the aging in oak barrels takes place for 2 years.
Being located on the southern fringe of the Barolo zone, the Principiano estate benefits from the biodiversity of the Alta Langhe: the wilderness that lies beyond the dense planting of Nebbiolo vineyards. This helps in maintaining a biodiverse balance in the vineyard.
This is a fabulous dinner party wine.
Enjoy with risotto or a braised beef dish.
Nose: Scents of raspberries, rose petals and dark red cherries.
Palate: Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish suggesting sweet spices and a hint of vanilla.
