Reviews of purchase Sordo Giovanni, Barolo "Rocche di Castiglione" DOCG, 2012
The wine is ruby-red, with years prone to pomegranate.
The taste of the wine is balanced, with a pleasant freshness, velvety tannins, notes of dried berries, black currants, cherries, with a little bitterness and a long, long aftertaste.
The aroma of wine expresses great elegance and grace. It is filled with notes of violets and red berries, ethereal hues and tender spicy nuances.
The wine goes well with red meat, game, mushrooms and mature cheeses.
Elegant wine "Gioso" Barbaresco is produced in the northern part of Italy, in Piedmont. It is a monosortal and is made from Nebbiolo grapes. Barbaresco, which has a tart berry taste with tempting notes of dry earth and spices, can really hit the taste buds. In the production of wine, fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 30 ° C and natural apple-milk fermentation at 20 ° C. Then the wine is aged for at least 9 months in large Bulgarian oak barrels. After bottling "Giozo" Barbaresco ripens another 6 months. The wine has a good storage potential and reaches maturity only after 5-10 years.
