Piedmont, Italy - 100% Nebbiolo
Alario Claudio is respected as one of the finest Producer in Diano d’Alba.
Made from 30 year old vines, this wine is intense with ripe fruit, cherry, violets, leather, truffle, dark chocolate, toasty oak. Powerful with a mature tannic full mouth feel and a persistent length with notes of hazelnuts.
Spending 2 years in new French oak, 1 year in neutral large oak, and 2 years in bottle this is a powerhouse wine with the aging already done so that you don't have too. Though with that said, 2016 is considered one of the best vintages and it will still cellar for another 10-15 years.
Pairing Suggestions: Perfectly suited to eggplant, Roasted Lamb, Mushroom Risotto, Lasagna, Veal Scallopini, Boar sausages.
Best served between 16°C - 18°C Degrees.
