K&L Notes

The 2013 vintage was cold and damp in Alba, but a sunny fall and a steady hand at the sorting table helped create beautiful, intricate wines. From the commune Monforte d’Alba, which is littered with the most famous of Barolo vineyards, this wine is 100% Barbera and aged in traditional Slavonian oak barrels of 77 hectoliters (you could fit the contents of over 34 standard barriques into one 77-hectoliter barrel). The Pian Romualdo is aged for one year in wood and is then bottled. The results are a classic expression of Barbera. The nose has hints of woodsy aromatics, dried flowers and bits of spice. On the palate the wine is long and elegant, with a good rich center showing layers of dark fruit. A persistent and vibrant finish makes this wine an ideal accompaniment to hearty pasta dishes or hard cheeses.

    Aromas of violets, rosemary, and leather. Secondary notes of blackberries, plums, and dark cherries. Flavors of plum and blackberry transition into savory notes of dried herbs and black pepper. A fantastic food wine; perfect match for roasted meats, game dishes, and aged cheeses.
