2007 A&G Fantino Cascina Dardi Barolo Bussia
ORIGIN: Piedmont, Italy
Special Notes: Sustainable
Year after year, in the wines they craft, from their Rosso and Barbera to their classic Baroli to their Riserva bottlings and their Passito and Chinato, the range is as mesmerizing as the consistency. In steps the latest incarnation of Riserva, from their oldest vines raised in a single large oak cask. Vintage 2007 offers immediate approachability, coupled with great power, density, and a down-to-earth (and earthy) Aged in large oak barrels for 5 years, then in bottle for 12 months.
Open, full nose has riper black cherry fruit, herbs and tar. Medium bodied palate with round fruit and fresh acids.
Food Recommendation: Stockyard Angus Beef Short Rib, Toriyama Wagyu, Venison and squid noodles
