Sordo Barbaresco DOCG 2015 Piedmont, Italy
Varieties: 100% Nebbiolo
Colour: Bright ruby red colour, fairly transparent, tends to turn garnet with ageing
Oak: 12 months in large Slavonian oak barrels
Nose: The purfume expresses great elegance and refinement, with floral aromas of violet and small red fruits, estery notes and delicately spicednuances.
On the palate it is balanced and full-bodied. Dried cranberries, hazelnuts, dried blueberries and spices. Well structured, velvety tannins and nice freshness. The finish is long and lingering
