Barolo Riserva Perno


A vineyard of exceptional value set in one of the most prestigious areas of the small hamlet of Perno in the municipal district of Monforte d’Alba.

An extraordinary colour of intense ruby red with pervasive garnet reflections indicating a young wine, not yet touched by the effects of the early years of maturation. A transparent and brilliant wine with a generous and noticeable formation of “church windows” and tears running copiously down the sides of the glass: an indication of its pronounced alcoholic strength and abundance of extractive substances.

The bouquet is self-assured, intense, pervasive and broad-based. It tells of delicate hints of ripened fruit, cacao, fine woods, mint and sweet spices.

In mouth, we experience an initial sensation of intense heat that is pleasing and almost sweet. A noble and austere wine thanks to the presence of mature tannins which blend well with its pronounced flavour and generosity. A note of excellence is provided by a slow development which promises and guarantees an extremely long life and further positive evolutions of its olfactory and in-mouth sensations, already quite remarkable.
An extraordinary wine of great structure, very well-construed and precisely orchestrated. The long, intense lingering of its aroma confers great class and nobility.
