Tenimenti Famiglia Cavallero Barolo La Fenice 2013
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
|Brand||Tenimenti Famiglia Cavallero|
Barolo La Fenice is produced from a special selection of the best clusters of nebbiolo grown in the vineyards in Barolo and Monforte. La Fenice appears a lively garnet with ruby highlights. The bouquet is complex and elegant with early notes of violets, rose petals, and fresh-picked fruits, enhanced by a broad spectrum of spices, with vanilla, cinnamon, and green pepper. The palate is lean and dry, with a firm structure and warm alcohol, yet smooth and well balanced. The finish is marked by subtle tanned leather and black liquorice. Food Pairing: La Fenice is the ideal accompaniment to all meat-based dishes, wild game of any type, marinades and stews, dishes with truffles, risottos and aged, rich cheeses.
Restrained aromas suggesting red-skinned berry, clove and licorice carry over to the austere no-frills palate alongside a hint of white pepper. Bracing tannins clench the finish. Drink after 2023.
