Montanaro Grappa Barolo Millesimata 2003
The best vintages of Nebbiolo da Barolo grappa forgotten in centuries old oak barrels.
Bright amber yellow color with intense shades and warm tones. The scent thast is perceived before tasting it is enveloping and intense. There are light fruity notes and more marked spicy notes typical of aged Barolo. However the emotion is given above all by the aromas that are largely developed while sipping the distillate. There is the complexity and harmony that was found in the perfume. The fruity turns on particular spicy notes such as tobacco, cinnamon and on more toasted notes typical of long aging in big barrel.
