We've been missing a Barolo from our portfolio and have been searching high and low for one displaying the required quality. We have found one quite close to home - from Aurelio Settimo whose Langhe Nebbiolo Aurelio Settimo Langhe Nebbiolo
we have been enjoying since our website was launched in October 2014.
Our full tasting note is work in progress but in summary this is a fantastic Barolo from a single vineyard, Le Rocche dell'Annuziata di la Morra, considered to be of Grand Cru stature.
It has the classic rose perfume on the nose with cherries and hints of raspberry. The texture is silky smooth. Very elegant.
"This garnet-red wine with ruby hues has an intense nose hinting at spices and liquorice. Well-structured and supple, with appealing tannins and good balance."

"Just mid ruby with bright orange rim. A little like Mostarda – candied fruit in mustard syrup – and a little chalky. Liquorice. Elegant with vibrant acidity and embryonic sweet fruit and well balanced but firm tannins. Classic."
