Cabutto

Riserva del Fondatore Tenuta La Volta Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Kalamata olives, dried black cherries, baker’s chocolate, rusted jalopy, black pretzel, tar, and dried violets. Energetic aromatically; evocative of a rustic stone house with a variegated garden of herbs, and perhaps straw roofing. Plum moves forward in a good way rounding out the basket. Powdered cherry and blood orange with the finest tannins seem to liquify into a delicious balancing act between fruit and earth and herbs. Ripe plum, dried red cherries, black cherry juice, black olives, blood orange over grilled meat, sassafras, sage, tarragon, black truffle, chicory and walnut. Not a traditional pairing with Californian lamb from sustainable vineyards in Lake County, but revalatory. #Barolo #nebbiololife #nebbiololover #nebbioli #cabutto #tenutalavolta #docg #piemonte #piedmont — 2 years ago
