MARZIANO ABBONA BAROLO 2013

Varietal: 100% Primitivo


Made from grapes cultivated in Perno, a village between Monforte and Serralunga d’Alba, this Barolo has a wonderful elegance to its bouquet, good strength, and excellent alcohol.

TASTING NOTES: The 2013 year has provided a persuasive aromatic complexity of ripe red and purple fruit. This wine is harmonious and balanced with the right acidity that contrasts freshness and sapidity.

RATING: 90 points – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
An earthy, savory style, this red boasts elements of cherry, with leather, tobacco, wild herb and underbrush flavors. Structured and dense, with an impression of ripeness creeping back in on the finish.
