Villadoria Barolo 2007
Wine Spectator: Rated as Outstanding: a wine of superior character and style. "Fresh and plump, with juicy flavors of cherry, raspberry, licorice, and oak spice. The oak doesn’t intrude, and this ends with an aftertaste of black cherry, tar and mineral notes. Best from 2014 through 2027. 6,000 cases made." Dec 2011
Winery: "A garnet red colour with a delicate, appealing, intense bouquet, reminiscent of violets and dry roses, alcohol-soaked cherries, vanilla, tobacco, truffles and pepper. The taste is full, robust, austere but velvety and harmonious."
Wired For Wine: The snow is really coming down; make sure you've got enough of this Villadoria Barolo to go around. Your first glasses will be absolutely delicious with bite-sized pieces of eggplant Parmesan. The balance and elegance, plump red fruit, oak spice, hint of pepper and altogether appealing nature of this Piedmontese Barolo will pair famously with red meats, game and gamebirds, mushrooms, rich pastas and lots more. With the white stuff piling up outside, we find ourselves in the mood for red wine braised lamb shanks on soft polenta. Prepari per grandezza. How about honey-roasted ham studded with cloves as some first class comfort food? It will tease out the beautiful spice notes in this Italian red. Grilled rib-eye with a rich Bearnaise sauce will give a nod to the earthy side of the wine, and leave you wanting more. Refill everyone's glasses and invite them to scoop out the creamy, nutty center of a French Petite Reblochon de Savoie cheese with crusty artisanal bread. Che cosa sono voi che aspettate?!
