Description

Marziano Abbona 2010 Pressenda Barolo
100% Nebbiolo | Alc: 14% – Big and Bold
Barolo, Piedmont, Italy

Winemaker’s notes:
Soils from this hillside site in the Monforte d’Alba commune of Barolo are loose which produce a bold style Barolo with longer aging potential. Great structure, persistent and solid with a long finish. It is velvety and dry.

Excellent with game, red meats, truffle dishes and aged cheeses and roast beef with Roquefort sauce.

Critical Acclaim:
“Fresh, with menthol and licorice notes shading the cherry and plum flavors. This is vibrant, with acidity and nervous tannins driving the long finish. Best from 2019 through 2035.” 92 Pts – Wine Spectator

“A wine with beautiful depth of fruit and richness with floral and berry character. Such purity. Full body, with fabulous concentration and balance. It lasts for minutes. One of the big surprises of the vintage.” 96 Pts – James Suckling
