Agricola Brandini Barolo Annunziata wine reigns from the lush vineyards of Piedmont, Italy. This luxurious red wine offers a vibrant nose of ripe fruit mixed with delicate undertones of rose and tobacco. On the palate, it presents a full-bodied richness with a subtle touch of sweetness that leads into a tantalisingly lasting finish. The Agricola Brandini Barolo's complex structure and mature tannins have been matured meticulously over three years. The product, a wine that showcases both character and nobility, pairs wonderfully with red meats and mature cheeses and lends itself to be savoured in front of a roaring fire. Perfect for special occasions.
Garnet red, tending to orange with aging. On the nose it shows itself already in youth through a spectrum of notes ranging from eucalyptus to sweet tobacco to get to small red fruits. The drink is deep and multifaceted, with a silky and resolute tannic mass. Fresh, persistent and elegant.
