Gemma Colarej 2013 is a robust, classic Barolo from the Piedmont wine region. Look for earthy violets, rose petals, dark black plum, olive, spice, dark chocolate and smoke on this flavoursome Barolo. The 2013 vintage is considered a very good one for Barolo.

Barolo food pairings: venison roast, rabbit fricassee, roast pheasant.

Reviews and Ratings

Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This Barolo posses the perfect balance between strong character and elegance - an old world style Barolo, with a young flair. Jam, dried fruit, plum, earth, and cinnamon on the nose with some elegant smokiness. Red fruits, raspberries, red cherries, plum, and wood on the palate with dust and silky tannins. Can easily age for 7 more years - decant for at least 30 minutes before serving and serve at 18 degrees with gamey dishes.
Gemma Colarej 2013 is a robust, classic Barolo from the Piedmont wine region. Look for earthy violets, rose petals, dark black plum, olive, spice, dark chocolate and smoke on this flavoursome Barolo from a great vintage. This is an elegant and powerful Barolo at a great price. Pair with a grilled Porterhouse beef steak. - Community Wine Reviews
