Ciabot Berton - 2013 / Barolo Ciabot Berton 1961 (89 tsomw points)
Traditional method with maceration of the must on the skins for at least 18-20 days at 30°C in fiberglass lined concrete vats.
Ageing: the wine is aged for 24-30 months in Slavonia oak casks of 25 hl capacity, for 6 months in steel vats and finally it is bottled.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a light transparant garnet red color.
On the nose intense aromas of blackberries, dark cherries, rose petals with hints of tar, spices and balsamico hints.
On the palate, dry, medium+ bodied. The tannins are tight but not disturbing. I used the @openyourwine to speed up the Decanter time. It feels pleasant in the mouth with a recall of the nose. It has a long light balsamico finish.
Give this baby some time to mature and receive more points.
Gastronomic combinations: it is ideal with roasts and red meats, braised beef and seasoned cheeses.
