Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno Nebbiolo d'Alba 2011
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
|Brand||Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno|
Colour: Garnet red with shades of ruby which change with age to a smoky orange. Bouquet: Full and fragrant, reminiscent of raspberry. In time it acquires a spicy edge. Flavor: Dry, full bodied, warm and intense. The "edges" of youth are smoothed with ageing into a well balanced, harmonious wine. Food match: A good match for first courses, pastas, and tasty soups. Also perfect with a cheese fondue,especially if richened with white truffle, meat and game. A well aged Nebbiolo would also be suitable for rich dishes.
A mix of floral, cherry, leather and spice aromas and flavors highlights this lean, firm red. The tannins are assertive, but this has intensity and complexity.
