Paolo Manzone Barolo Meriame 2017
About the winery
In the rustic Serralunga d'Alba, in the heart of the DOCG Barolo, is the cru Meriame, where Paolo Manzone has planted his Nebbiolo for his main wines. The vineyard dates back to 1948 and the vines are sometimes up to 70 years old. Manzone has been inspired by Burgundy and makes Barolos that mature in French Bourgogne barrels. They are Barolos in a fairly modern style, which match the accessible and somewhat earthy style Barolos that the Meriame Cru delivers.
Colour: Ruby red.
Smell: Dark cherries, dried fruit, coffee, rose petals, tar and vanilla.
Taste: Full, powerful taste, the fruit, tannins and wood are nicely balanced.
Serve with: Delicious with charcuterie, such as bresaola, salami and spicy sausage. Also delicious with a stew with beef and mushrooms.
This fantastic barolo has the maximum score of 3 bichierri in the Gambero Rosso, the wine guide of Italy.
