Nebbiolo * 75cl * Vegan * 14% ABV * DOC Barolo, Italy
Although it is obviously easy to buy cheap-as-chips Barolo, it has a tendency to not only be quite sharp but also dilute (i.e. watery). Araldica's Barolo has neither of these issues and it displays all the best characters of the Nebbiolo grape, including aromas of tobacco, leather and violets. Soft, light tannins give this a silky mouthfeel and a ripe fruit character on the palate. Its slightly savoury edge makes it perfect with all things game - wild boar sausages, venison, hogget or gamebird.
