Gagliasso Rocche dell Annunziata Barolo
Azienda Agricola Gagliasso
Italy - Piemonte - Barolo DOCG

This is a gorgeous wine on many fronts. Firstly, its aromas of wild berry, smoke and cedar are focused and pristine. Secondly, the texture it imparts in the mouth is dense, firm but ultimately yielding and plush. Lastly, the wine's fresh flavors endure for many minutes.
