Giacomo Ascheri Barolo 2018
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
Intense garnet red color. Rich and composite bouquet of sweet spices, dried flowers, leather and undergrowth. Harmonious, well structured with elegant tannins and great balance and complexity. Elegant and powerful wine at the same time. Try it with roasted, skewered and grilled red meats and ripe cheeses.
The shy nose offers whiffs of violet, damp underbrush, leather and camphor. The palate has an earthy, almost rustic charm, offering truffle, black olive, botanical herb and Morello cherry before finishing on notes recalling salted game. Tight, dusty tannins leave a drying finish.
