A family run estate based in the little village of Monforte, Manzone represent the charm and generosity of the Barolo region. Cheerful and hardworking winemaker Mauro Manzone joined the family estate in 2005, with sister Mirella following in 2012. They work alongside father Giovanni to make Barolos that are approachable with pure fruit, but remain recognisably true to their roots. They’re fantastic for anyone first approaching the wines of Barolo.
This wine from a south-south-west facing vineyard has an intense, open floral nose. The palate suggests crushed wild strawberries, cherries, liquorice and the heady flavours of sumac spice. The lovely mouthfeel reveals a refined wine with considerable grip to the tannins at present and a lingering finish.
