We tasted: Barolo la Serra 2011
A historical cru of La Morra. The vineyard faces southeast at an altitude of about 400 meters. The soil is tufaceous (limestone) and calcareous (clay/chalk). The esposition and soil composition endow this wine with both structure and tannins suitable for a long aging. During the aging the wine is held in barriques and tonneaux for about 6-7 months before transfer to botti.
The bouquet will definitly surprise you! It presents complex aromas of berry marmalade and brandied cherries, with detectable spicey notes. For the food pairing is perfect with red meat, arrosti, wild games and seasoned cheese.
