Intense ruby red with orange reflections. Bouquet of ripe fruit nose of currants and raspberries with hints of violet. Flavor is balanced with silky, sweet tannins, excellent structure and a long finish.
Pairs well with red meats, braises and medium to long-aged cheeses made with cow or sheep milk.
A ripe, velvety red with lots of ripe strawberries, chocolate and some hazelnuts. It’s full-bodied with ripe tannins and a flavorful finish.
The 2016 Barolo Le Coste Di Monforte is somewhat more introspective, with notes of dried black cherry, menthol, dried herbs, and baked earth. The palate is rich with game, cola, and building tannins as well as a long finish. Hold in cellar 3-5 years and drink 2024-2046.
Of these three new Baroli from Pecchenino, the 2016 Barolo le Coste di Monforte shows the greatest focus and sharpness. The other two wines are noticeably softer in terms of their aromatic direction compared to this wine. Le Coste di Monforte offers dark fruit, balsam herb, spice, campfire ash and ferrous earth in nicely balanced proportions. This wine sees long skin maceration times lasting 60 days (at 28 degrees Celsius), concluding with 36 months in oak cask. This gives the wine its rich flavor profile. Fruit comes from a site measuring just under a hectare at a high altitude of 450 meters above sea level.
