Description

Cascina Bongiovanni create this exceptional Barolo wine. Nebbiolo grapes are crushed before being fermented on their skins in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine is aged for a minimum of 18 months in French oak barriques.

The result is a wine with a combination of density, clarity and precision that leaves you stunned. Damp cedar and forest fruit characters on the nose alongside a hint of wet mint and earthy mushrooms. The palate bursts with black cherry, dried red berries, liquorice, and twiggy dried spice. Supple, fine-grained tannins with good supporting weight and a fruity finish.

Suitable for bottle ageing for a further 10-15 years This wine is bottled without filtration so will require decanting at least 30 minutes before consumption. Try with rich ragu and risotto dishes, or strong cheeses.

Cascina Bongiovanni are a small, family-run estate in the heart of Italy’s prestigious Piedmont region. Two hectares of 30+ year old vines in hillside vineyards of clay-loam soils have controlled yields and minimal interference, with limited use of chemical sprays. The annual temperatures, rainfall and climatic conditions determine the quantity of Barolo produced.
