Araldica Flori Barolo 2014

Piedmont, ItalyAraldica is a third generation, family operated co-op based in Piedmont, working with over 230 growers across regions including Barbera, Gavi, Langhe, Moscato, Barolo, Barbaresco, Monferrato and Roero. This Barolo was destemmed and fermented over 12 days with daily pump-overs, being careful not to extract too much of nebbiolo's raging tannin. It was pressed off into 50hl Slavonian oak, where it remained for 3 years. Drinking very well upon opening, dried roses imbuing dried cherry, plum, mulberry, mushrooms, and fine, brown spicing. Tannins are appropriately quite gripping, keeping this upright with a firm to dark cocoa and tobacco-kissed finish. At prime drinking now, especially with roast pork and/or wild mushroom dishes.Tasted: 26 September 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 46.99 private wine shops Producer: Araldica Vini PiemontesiDistributors: The Drinks List
