From the great Italian 1964 wine vintage, this wine has been cellared at Mirafiore until purchase by our Italian buyer.
"Highly perfumed amaretto, truffle, rose, toasted sesame, saddle leather, damp earth. Quite prominent acidity on the medium bodied palate, Morello cherries, confection, Christmas cake and baking spice. Quite graceful poise, with still some tannic reserve. Got better as the hours rolled on. Delightfully youthful, freshening with air." Cellar Tracker Review (2017)
Barolo lies just south-west of Alba in Italy's north-western Piedmont region. It is considered one of the finest and longest-lived wines, often referred to as 'the king of wines and the wine of kings'. Wine production is strictly limited to the vineyards located on steep hills around the towns of Barolo, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d'Alba and Monforte d'Alba, Despite the different characteristics of these wines due to the varied terroir, they do display similar traits. These include a garnet color, powerful structure, firm tannins and high levels of acidity and alcohol, with the capacity to age for many years. They are also characterized by their unmistakable aromas of tar and roses. Made from pure Nebbiolo Barolo is required to spend at least three years ageing, of which two must be spent in wood and one in bottle. For the added designation of riserva, the ageing time increases to five years. As the tannins soften over time, the complexity shows through with hints of earth, truffles and dark chocolate
good level and label note some do not have red button on front.
