Carlin de Paolo Barolo

DESCRIPTION

Carlin de Paolo’s Barolo is cultivated in a typical Mediterranean climate from the regions of Piedmont, Langhe, Cuneo, Castiglione Falletto, planted in soil with a medium mix of lime, clay, and sand with some calcareous tendencies at an altitude of 300 – 350m above sea level. Grapes are trained on 50 – 60 year old vines on the traditional Piedmontese guyot system with a density of 4,000 – 4,500 vine stocks per hectare, yielding 60 quintals of Nebbiolo grapes per hectare. After harvest, grapes are vinified in French oak barrels for at least 3 years and are left to mature in the bottle for at least 2 years. The resulting wine is garnet red with brick-red nuances.

TASTE

With an intense aroma with complex scents of cherry, mint, violet and jam, the wine provides powerful sensations on the nose as well as the palate. Harmonic tannins, warm, and full- flavored with dominant characteristics of violet and withered rose make this wine perfect for elaborate international dishes; it commands prestige on the table.
