Cordone Barolo 2012

Known as “The Wine of Kings, The King of Wines,” legendary Barolo is one of Italy’s (and the world’s) greatest reds. Prized for its haunting fragrance, complex flavors and ability to age for decades, it has graced the tables of royalty since the Middle Ages.

Made for a special dinner, this beauty is brought to you by the masterful Bruno Cordero, whose acclaimed Terre da Vino winery is in the heart of Barolo. It arrives backed by decades of acclaim – including repeat Due Bicchieri or “Two Glasses,” kudos from Gambero Rosso, Italy's famed wine and food guide.

Cordone will cellar well over the next several years – though there’s no need to wait if you’re thirsty or there’s no room in your cellar. This lovely red is ready to drink (and impress) right now. Aromas of blackberry, rose petal and earthy spice will greet your nose, with juicy plum and black cherry on the palate. Enticing spice and classic truffle notes are supported by Barolo’s trademark firm tannins and a long, smooth finish.

Sip this with full-flavored pastas, savory red meats and more – or, for the best pairing of all, try it with any dish involving Piedmont’s famous truffles. We guarantee the match will be sublime.

Very few cases. Hurry for your share.
