The 1970 Franco Florina Barolo is a tribute to the producer's reputation for making age worthy wines. Still structured and good power. Fully mature, but fresh and clean. More on the undergrowth and mushrooms than floral and red-fruited side of mature nebbiolo. Excellent.

Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape. Heady aromas of rose, leather, vanilla, cherry, pepper, cranberry, strawberry. Fruits are perfectly knitted with the tannins and acidity. It's a powerful wine but remarkably subtle. Don't underestimate it and certainly serve it with food to show at it's best. Nebbiolo has naturally high tannins and acidity, so it will take on full-flavoured, rich foods with no problem at all.
