Barolo “Riserva del Fico” DOCG, Sergio Molino (2013) - Piemonte
Grape : Nebbiolo.
Great Barolo at nose thanks to spices, violet, tobacco. In mouth it is full and soft with very elegant and smooth tannins. Medium high persistency. After 10 years the harmony will reach its peak! A very promising, juicy and intense Barolo with surprisingly "Burgundian", Pinot Noir-like overall aroma and taste with really tightly-knit structure, typical of Nebbiolo. In all likelihood, the wine is going to continue to improve at least for the next 15-20 years and keep for even longer. A terrific and very promising wine.
Food Pairing : perfect for classic osso buco with risotto alla Milanese.
