Barolo - one of the world's greatest wines, in the hands of a master.
Paolo Manzone's among the new wave of Piemonte producers: 'The Innovators'. At his 'azienda', spread across Serralunga d'Alba, Sinio and Roddino, he insists on all vineyard operations and picking being carried out by hand, guaranteeing crops one-third less than the average and richly-concentrated grapes. This intense Barolo reveals the rich yet elegant bramble fruit flavours typifying Paolo's style. Contains Sulphites.
Tasting Note: Bright and clear. On the palate - elegance, complexity and totally approachable. Utterly delicious, lingering pleasure.
