This full-bodied red wine offers enticing aromas of dark fruit, tar, toasty and spice. Barolo wines are rarely priced this affordably, so give this this Piedmont, Nebbiolo-based grape wine a try. The tannins are firm and there will be plenty of fruit here to bring balance. A real gripper but I like it! Big, black with a tarry streak through the middle. Black cherry resistance and some dark spices. Perfect for black magic nights.

Barolo food pairings: beef stew.

Piedmont's great Nebbiolo-based wines are renowned for their ageability - a trait made possible by the prominent levels of tannins and acidity. Barolos of the quality of La Pieve are rarely seen at this price. Easily capable of rewarding another 5+ years in the cellar, this will thrive for up to another ten years. Don't miss this opportunity to experience one of the world's great wines. Source: Vintages Wine Ratings and Reviews, undated.
