Immerse yourself in Aldo Clerico's Barolo Ginestra DOCG 2017, a wine that is an ode to the land of Piedmont. Produced in the heart of Monforte d'Alba, this wine is an olfactory and gustatory portrait of the territory. Made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes from "Ginestra" Cru, the wine undergoes a period of aging in oak barrels, giving it extraordinary complexity. Visually, the wine is a deep ruby, almost as if capturing the essence of a Piedmontese sunset. On the nose, it unveils a bouquet of ripe red fruits, spices, and earthy notes—an intricate labyrinth of aromas inviting you to lose yourself. On the palate, it's an explosion of flavors: cherry, raspberry, and a touch of leather and tobacco. The structure is solid, a wine with a generous body that promises significant aging potential. For a complete culinary experience, pair it with hearty dishes like braised meats and roasts, or enjoy a moment of contemplation with a good book.
