Stroppiana Barolo Leonardo 2017

Product description

The name of this Barolo comes from name of Dario and Stefania Stroppiana’s son. It is made from Nebbiolo grapes harvested from plots in Verduno and Rivalta La Morra. Interestingly the vines are about the same age as Leonardo. Harvested in mid-October, the grapes were fermented in tank and then transferred to French barriques and tonneaux to age for 24 months. Prior to release, the wine spent an additional 12 months in bottle ageing in the family’s cool cellar.

An approachable expression of Barolo, it has lovely aromas of dried flowers, anise, tar and red fruits. The tannins are soft, which makes this accessible, yet the crisp acids give this some shape. Complex, well balanced and a joy to drink.
