Barbaresco D.O.C.G. RISERVA
“Serra Capelli” 15 Years Reserve
DENOMIMAZIONE DI ORIGINE CONTROLLATA
A complex, rich bouquet full of floral and spicy notes with intense, sweet rolling tannins and a long finish. On the nose, pleasant hints of raspberry, cocoa and vanilla. A full, noble wine with good body. Ideal serving temperature is 18°-20°C. Do not expose to abrupt changes of temperature. Its fragrance and scents are highlighted if put into a crystal decanter and then poured into crystal stemware with an ample bowl. Swirl it around the glass to finally taste and appreciate it. This wine is for memorable occasions and elegant tables. It is a perfect match for savory stuffed pasta, stewed and braised meats, game and pungent, fully ripe cheeses.
