Description

The heart of the Prinicipiano estate is Serralunga d’Alba in Barolo, where the Principiano name can be traced back hundreds of years.  Ferdinando Principiano took over from his father in the early 90s.  After a few vintages making wines in a more modern way,  he realised that the wines were lacking the longevity that Barolo is so well known for.  He decided to go back to a more traditional way of making wine. His vineyards are now full of biodiversity and he is always searching for better ways to grow healthy vines without using chemicals. In the winery, he takes a minimal-intervention approach, using little to no sulphites. Each wine is allowed to express its own unique character, but all share the Principiano qualities of immense purity and focus.

Produced from 100% Nebbiolo, an absolutely delicious Barolo which is a gorgeous ruby colour with intense  smoky aromas of  cherry, vanilla, cinnamon with notes of spice.  Delicious flavours of deep black fruit, smooth velvety tannins with a superbly balanced structure and an elegant finish of sweet spice and vanilla.

 

A superb accompaniment to Porcini Mushroom Risotto, Braised Beef, Stuffed Pasta with Meat.
