Monchiero Carbone Barolo 2018

  • Sale
  • Regular price $41.00

WINERY: Monchiero Carbone
REGION: Piemonte
GRAPE: 100% Nebbiolo

WINEMAKER NOTES: A superb Barolo from a top Roero winery. The grapes are picked mid-October, following a slow fermentation and long maceration. Aged in wooden barrels for at least 18 months. The Barolo completes its aging in a bottle for another year.

TASTING NOTES: Red-skinned fruit, leather and crushed mint aromas lead the nose. The linear palate offers red cherry, tobacco and star anise alongside fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity. 

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Great with meat ravioli, red meat dishes, boiled meat, braised meats and game. It is ideal with “toma” cheese of sheep and goat and aged hard paste cheeses

ABOUT THE WINERY: The Monchiero Carbone winery is located in Canale, in the center of the village, in a nineteenth century stately farmhouse, which hosts in its basement a large and fascinating historical cellar, untouched for over two centuries. The winery name bears the surnames of Marco Monchiero and Lucia Carbone, Francesco Monchiero’s parents, who started the production of wine using the vineyards inherited from each family. The origins and the connections with winemaking are, however, to be found in the past, among the members of the two families.
