Tasting Notes

Known as the King of Wines in Italy, and for good reason.

Made from the magnificent Nebbiolo grape from the Piedmont region in northern Italy, the flavours are bold.

Think truffles and roses, with lots of black fruits.

One to serve with roasted red meats.

Storage Instructions

This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 4 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2008 vintage, Olly Smith said: “A great intro to Barolo with aromas of truffle and rosé, rich flavours that take no prisoners so pair with a steak or slab of Parmesan. Classic Barolo from a good vintage made by the mighty Matteo Ascheri.”

Olly Smith - Live (The Mail on Sunday) 25/11/2012

Of the 2008 vintage, Hamish Anderson said: “It is rare to find good Barolo under £20 – this is a stone-cold bargain from one of the region’s best modern estates. It is typical of the local nebbiolo grape – a delicate, perfumed nose and light colour deceive. This is powerful wine of leather, black cherry and allspice. If goose is your bird of choice, look no further.”

Hamish Anderson - Daily Telegraph Magazine 08/12/2012

Background

History
