Tasting notes
La Fenice appears a lively garnet with ruby highlights,tending to shades of orange as it ages. It releases a dense bouquet of extraordinary complexity, elegance, balance and completeness. First showing violets, rose petals, and fresh-picked fruits, typical of this Barolo in its early months, the nose then develops a broad spectrum of spices, with vanilla, cinnamon, and green pepper clearly emerging. The palate exhibits superb volume, is lean and dry, with a firm structure and warm alcohol, yet smooth and well balanced, already showing appreciable characteristics of evolution. The finish is marked by subtle tanned leather and black liquorice.

Wine maker notes
La Fenice is produced from a special selection of the best clusters of nebbiolo grown in the vineyards in Pugnane and Bussia, between the commune of Barolo and that of Monforte. The soils are morainal with a mixture of dark clays and whiteish, sandy marls that give to the nebbiolo grapes their rich, distinctive aromas, vibrant ruby hue, and elegant structure.

Food pairing
Its particularly lengthy finish makes La Fenice the ideal accompaniment to the very finest Italian and international meat-based cuisine, wild game of any type, marinades and stews, dishes with truffles, risottos, and aged, rich cheeses. At times, the pleasure of uncorking a bottle of aged Barolo may have little to do with the enjoyment of a meal, but will find its motivation in the enjoyment of an excellent wine in the company of friends and family, or in simply sipping it meditatively all by itself.
