Roero DOCG Riserva Colla 2016

Tasting notes

An enchanting bouquet of raspberries with hints of roses and vanilla.

A rich taste in the mouth with smooth tannins that are well balanced with the warmth of the body. It recalls the bark of dried roses, red currents and raspberries.

Is well matched with plates based on meat and international cuisine and the best medium seasoned cheeses. To be served at 18°C. Number of bottles produced: 2500.
