Also indexed as:Barbaresco
A powerful high-acid, high-tannin varietal that often needs many years of aging to begin displaying its charms. This is grown almost exclusively in Italy's Piedmont region where it produces the wines known as Barolo and Barbaresco.
With classic aromatics of "tar and roses," this is less about fruit (sour cherry, plums, and raisins) and more about earthy nuance: mushroom, freshly tilled soil, black licorice spice, and herbaceous floral notes.
Beef roasts, venison, wild boar, wild mushroom gravy.
ModernSteak au poivre, leg of lamb with tomatoes and garlic, pasta Bolognese.
