Luigi Pira Barolo Vigna Rionda 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"As it often is, Pira’s 2004 Barolo Marenca is a thrilling wine. This layered, sumptuous Barolo possesses generous, plump fruit, sweet spices, menthol and new leather flavors with an expansive, rich personality. The oak is well-integrated and the wine offers superb balance, with tannins that finish big but polished. The Marenca is aged exclusively in 500-liter barrels...94." WA 12/07"Beautiful aromas of fresh strawberry and raspberry follow through to a full body, with firm tannins and a long finish..." -WS 05/08

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
