Cantina Stroppiana Barolo Vigna San Giacomo 2007

75 cl

Another great Barolo from this Piedmont producer. We were immediatley drawn to these wines because they offer great value versus quality and are a little less harsh than some of the really tannic wines from this region.

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Intense with a pleasant scent of brushwood interspersed with tobacco and spicy notes and characterised by considerable elegance and composure.
Palate Dry, warm and velvety with an intense impact which is full and harmonious, with just the right level of tannins. Enveloping and persistent, culminating in a very pleasant aftertaste.
Colour Ruby with a garnet red trim
