Barolo Pernanno Riserva D.O.C.G.

“Riserva, that often means that the winegrower couldn’t get rid of the wine on the paving stones, his wife didn’t want it in the pan either, so that he kept it indefinitely and called it riserva with a hefty price tag on it. . Who knows, someone might stink in it.

Not here. This is not a barolo that smells of old wood, asphalt with cobwebs in the aftertaste.

This is barolo rightfully reserved, kept until ready to serve,. Barolo preserved because it is the cream of the crop, from the best grapes from a special vineyard, picked in a special vintage. Barolo who, when tasting in the winegrower’s cellar, turned out to be getting better and better, so that it was decided: we’ll keep that one behind for a while, that’s going to be a riserva,

A super barolo.

Stricter and more powerful, with more wood than their Castiglione, but just as generous with fruit and subtle nuances. A firm, broad-shouldered wine, full of subtleties. still young. A pleasure now, but can also be kept for a long time.”
