Introducing Our Wine Of The Month: Giribaldi Barolo DOCG

Here we are with April’s Wine of the month, and it’s brand new to Charles Rose Wines.

Barolo is a ruby red Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) wine heralding from the northern Italian region of Piedmont. It is made from the Nebbiolo grape and is often described as one of Italy’s greatest wines.

Our Barolo comes from Giribaldi, a third-generation family run wine maker. It is a deliciously deep red colour with hints of coffee, liquorice and chocolate. Full bodied with soft silky tannins, overflowing with red fruit. This wine finishes clean and elegantly.

Barolo is well known for it’s powerful tannins and so it pairs well with red meat dishes, rich risottos and powerful pastas.

So if you are looking for a big wine to ring in the spring then give it a try! With 10% off the RRP until the end of the month!
