Alcohol/vol 14%
Deep garnet red with bright hues which naturally evolve with age. The bouquet is intense, very complex, offering a wide range of notes; with remarkable red fruit combined with floral and spicy hints. Especially after a few years of aging, this Barolo shows all the elegance and charm that only Nebbiolo grapes can offer. The flavor is robust, rich, and austere. It perfectly reflects the great complexity of the soil in Serralunga d'Alba. The perfect Barolo for long aging. An elegant companion for important rice and pasta dishes, such as risotto cooked in Barolo, and rich and tasty main courses, such as roasted meats. After a few years of aging, this Barolo expresses its considerable potential just as well when sipped as a wine for thought and served with hard and medium-hard cheeses.

Forest floor, grilled herb, iris and camphor aromas appear in the glass. Combining structure and finesse, the firm palate delivers ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, baking spice and licorice alongside tightly knit, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2025-2032.

The 2017 Barolo Parafada has pure aromas of dried red cherry, tar, cinnamon, and dried roses. There is lift on the palate with pomegranate, tobacco, and dried orange zest. The tannins are firm, though not a touch more linear than some of the other sites, with a bit more approachability now. Drink 2023-2042.

The 2017 Barolo Parafada comes across as compact and closed in on itself. There is plenty of depth and density, but the Parafada is very tightly wound at this stage. It will be interesting to see what time in bottle brings. Today, the 2017 feels squashed and compact.
