Monte Degli Angeli Barolo 2017
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
|Brand||Monte Degli Angeli|
Red, with yellowish orange hints due to the ageing process. Dry, velvety and austere, with a bouquet of faded rose and violet. Aged 3 years in large oak casks. In bottles for the final six months. Pair with red meat, game, and pungent cheeses. Serve at 20 degrees taking care to uncork the bottle several hours before pouring.
Aromas of underbrush and tobacco waft out of the glass. The no-frills palate recalls raspberry jam, hazelnut and a hint of fennel seed alongside loosely knit tannins. Drink through 2027.
