Grape(s): 100% Nebbiolo
Localization: Piedmont, Italy
Tasting Notes: With classic Nebbiolo pale ruby color, this has fragrant aromas of roses, morello cherries, black currants, and spice. The medium-bodied palate features beautifully integrated firm tannins framing the classy, complex flavors of savory fruit and spice. Cherries, berries, licorice, and spice harmonize gracefully on the palate and lead to a long, distinguished, and regally textured finish.
Food Pairing: Enjoy with beef and mushroom dishes
The Domain: The Guidobono estate was born from a dream of one day being able to produce great Barolo. The Faccenda family purchased the winery in 2003 and set about making that dream a reality. The vineyards lie just outside of the tiny hamlet of Monforte d’Alba,one of the most prestigious growing zones for the Nebbiolo grape. The vines are between 30 and 40 years old and the soil is of primarily limestone composition with some clay and sand. Guidobono’s wines are textbook interpretations of the indigenous grapes of the Langhe, driven by tradition.
