The Barolo Monchiero Barolo Roere Di Santa Maria 2017 DOCG is very inviting with a strong nose, sweetish fruit, has power, juice and tension.
In the idyllic village of "Ciocchini", which belongs to the municipality of La Morra, the Roere Santa Maria vineyard is located in a south-west orientation. For almost 4 decades, this entire vineyard has been in the Owned by the Monchiero family and they produce an excellent Barolo single site wine from this cru.
IIn the course of October, the grapes are harvested by hand and, after destemming, they ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Then they are then matured in large oak barrels. Depending on the vintage, this process takes at least 24 months. The aging will not be complete until the wine has been bottled and has finished its six-month aging in the bottle.
Everything is well framed by the discreetly used wood. The tannin is fine-grained and delicate. Has slightly nutty vein and good length. A full-bodied single-vineyard wine with the elegance and harmony typical of La Morra.
The wine harmonises very well with mature cheese, risotto, game, roasts and lamb. It has good drinking maturity now and for the next 10 years.
