Barolo Lo Zoccolaio 2017

Barolo from Lo Zoccolaio winery is the most authentic expression of the richness of the territory from which it originates: the Langhe. The exposure of the property's vineyards is among the best in the area and the grapes come from Barolo, Monforte d'Alba and Verduno; the vinification process ends with 36 months of ageing in French barriques, which gives this wine its renowned structure. The colour is garnet and the aromas released give sensations of oriental spices and toasting. The taste is ample, intense, with lively tannins and a long, savoury finish
