Made from grapes cultivated in Perno, a village between Monforte and Serralunga dAlba, this Barolo has a wonderful elegance to its bouquet, good strength, and excellent alcohol. Marziano Abbona has distinguished itself as one of the regions finest producers. The Abbona family has been cultivating vineyards since the 1920s and Marziano Abbona began bottling wine under the family name in the 1970s. Abbona owns a total of 40 hectares in Dogliani, Barolo, and Barbaresco, in Piemonte.
Fresh, lightly spiced and nicely structured Barolo here, offering clean red-berry and orange-peel character. Medium-to full-bodied with a cool, fresh feel to the palate. Like it. Drink from 2023.
