Gigi Rosso Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba 2012

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Description: This powerful and generous Barolo owes its quality to the lime-based terrain in which it grows. It combines a big structure with accentuated tannins and delicate etherial notes. It best expresses its complexity after several years of bottle ageing developing perfumes of resin, leather and cocoa. It is by nature a Barolo of great character that mellows with ageing. Colour: Intense garnet red with orange highlights. Bouquet: Ethereal and heady fragrances of fruit jam accompanied by vegetal notes and spices. Taste: Full bodied, warm, intense, invigorating, dry and tannic, with a long finish and characteristic “goudron” (tar) aftertaste. Although good after four years, Barolo continues to improve in the bottle and can be kept for over ten years. Food accompaniment: Meat dishes, especially braised meat and game. Seasoned cheese. Ageing: 36 months in large Slavonian Oak barrels. Bottle Ageing: 6 months Alcohol: 13.5 % vol. Total Acidity: 5.5 g/l. Dry extract: 28 g/l.
