Ciabot Berton Barolo del Commune di La Morra
Pale garnet red with ruby highlights. The bouquet reveals scents of wild rose, violet and broom. The palate is dominated by plum, strawberry, red fig and carob, supported by sweet notes of spices and liquorice. Fresh, delicate and floral, it combines a sweet and pleasant tannic structure with an acidic vein that is present but well integrated into the body of the wine. Excellent persistence in the finish.
