Barolo DOCG Monvigliero

Characteristics

Barolo D.O.C.G. “Monvigliero” wine grows in the vineyards from one of the best area of Verduno, located in Barolo area at 200 to 300 ft. above sea level. Monvigliero can properly be considered the true “grand cru” of Verduno, and the finest example of the elegance.* The average age of the vines is 25 years old, and they are grown on a southern exposure in calcareous clay soils, at a density of about 5,000 plants per hectare. Taste: Elegant, dry, intense, robust but velvety and harmonic. This wine goes well with red meat, game and matured cheese. It is advised to drink it at a temperature of 18-20C, decanting it carefully.
