Barolo Riserva Gabutti

D.O.C.G

A vineyard planted in a so-called ‘prime category’ sub-zone which, owing to its superb characteristics, is one of the most interesting and prestigious in the municipal district of Serralunga d’Alba.

A splendid colour of deeply intense garnet red with the positive presence of luminous ruby reflections bearing the promise of excellent future development and longevity. Perfectly brilliant. A noticeable development of “church windows” and tears flowing down the sides of the glass are indicative of great generosity, structure and alcoholic strength.

A bouquet that is austere, noble and remarkable, as well as being very pervasive and lingering. Excellent self-assurance. Amidst the strong yet non-intrusive sensations of oak, it is possible to perceive the aroma of ripe fruit and the fragrance of mountain flowers. A slight presence of resin accentuates tones of sweet spices and peach leaves.

The first’ in-mouth, sensation is one of intense heat followed by the evident presence of fine tannins tending to sweetness. A pronounced savoury flavour typical of the soil. The aromas and sensations initially perceived by the nose are confirmed and considerably intensified.
A great structure, harmony and balance, combined with a lingering aromatic persistence and complexity are the incontrovertible prerequisites of a glorious longevity
