“The 2013 Barolo Parussi is built like a little fortress with compact black fruit held tightly together by good extraction, bold structure and textural importance. The wine ages in large Slavonian oak casks for 30 months. [...] The finish is linear and elegant with a long and polished finish that emits tones of dried fruit, smoke and licorice.” 93+ Points - Monica Larner Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Parussi is the first Barolo made from grapes grown outside Serralunga d’Alba, in another fantastic area: Castiglione Falletto. The traditional vinification and ageing processes, which are the same as those used for its “Barolo brothers” from Serralunga d’Alba, highlight the well-known capacity of Nebbiolo grapes to deliver Barolos with different fascinating characteristics reflecting even the slightest changes in the microclimate and soil the grapes were grown in.
Perfect with the rich, traditional cuisine of the region, stewed meats and medium- long matured cheeses.
Appearance: deep garnet red
Bouquet: ethereal and enveloping with intense and persistent notes of sweet spices, sandalwood, tobacco and leather.
Flavour: Great structure. Remarkable tannin which softens with time and make it a perfect wine also for ageing. Its very long finish is typical of Barolos from Castiglione Falletto.
It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C.
