Hand selected from the small commune of Barolo
How Barolo manages to deliver so much power and grace in such a lightly tinted red wine amazes me. This wine smells like a face-full of roses and cherries marked with saffron and Chinese cinnamon/exotic spices. As it opens in the glass, those tar notes pick up truffle scents and the slightest whiff of falling evergreen needles landing on the forest floor. Tannins integrate into cherry berry flavors with nostalgic hints of rose petal coming back for the palate.
Traditional vinification; soft pressing with 30 days of maceration at 75 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by 1 year in stainless steel and then 2 years in Slavonian and French 5000 liter oak barrels, refined in stainless tanks before heading straight to you.
|Pair With:||The King of Italy, Barolo is the epitome of Italian wines and warrants a celebration, a seal-the-deal date or a treat-yo-self evening in.|
THE PERFECT RECIPE: Red wine mushroom sauce
Barolo is a beautiful wine, and the nebbiolo grape allows it to pair with all types of foods. Mushrooms and anise flavors, along with truffle (swoon) are some of our favorites. This rich mushroom sauce atop a nice steak or veal chop with a glass of Barolo from VINEBOX; done.
Melt the butter in a large skillet or saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the mushroom slices and cook until they release their juices and soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the salt and pepper. Continue to cook until the juices evaporate. Add the wine and rosemary. Bring to a simmer. Cook for 3 minutes. Pour or spoon the sauce over cooked meat.
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 pound mushrooms (such as button), thinly sliced
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup red wine
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
"Arguably the best of Italy"
The Demarie domain covers over 35 acres of vineyards that are located in the surrounding boroughs of Vezza, Castagnito, Castellinaldo and Guarene. The vineyards of Barolo are located in Santa Maria in La Morra, an area that is ideal for the production of Nebbiolo. The Demarie family released the 2006 vintage as their first bottling with a 250 Case Production. That's super small.
