Ascheri Barolo Pisapola

Origin

Ascheri Barolo Pisapola 2011 comes from vineyards situated in the western part of the Barolo area in the Piedmont, region of northern Italy. This estate is located partly in the municipality of La Morra and partly in the municipality of Verduno.   Matteo Ascheri, considered to be one of the finest winemakers in Italy, makes two Barolos that illustrate the disarming diversity of this beautiful part of Piemonte: Pisapola and Sorano.

Style

Ascheri Barolo Pisapola 2011 has a brilliant intense garnet colour. The wine displays the characteristic, ethereal and intense bouquet with notes reminiscent of violets and ripe fruit. Full-bodied, soft, velvety and persistent palate, in some ways austere but harmonious and pleasant at the same time.

Food Match

Excellent with full flavoured dishes such as roast beef or a rich risotto.
