Barolo Bussia, Dardi le Rose
A fantastic Barolo from Poderi Colla; approachable, meaty and spicy! Typical Nebbiolo burnt sunset colour. Ripe meaty nose with hints of dried figs, leather, spice and generous ripe berry aromas. Rich plummy fruit, warm and spicy with herbal notes on the palate, good tannic structure and a level of acidity which means that, whilst drinking now, this wine will age and improve for many years. The Colla family truly make wine in the vineyard, with a non-interventionist approach to wine making, enabling each wine a unique expression of site and vintage. Tenuta Dardi Le Rose is a very special wine from a single vineyard in the Bussia hillside of Barolo’s Monforte d’Alba district. It is Nebbiolo at its best, rich and complex with fascinating perfumes and textures.
Food Recommendation: Perfect with veal, full pasta dishes, also works particularly well with rich fish dishes such as roast turbot
