On 19 January we boxed up one of our line’s most important wines: the Barolo Leon Riserva 2006. Three years in oak barrels and two years bottled give credit where credit is due to the extraordinary 2006 harvest. A wine conceived for undergoing a long period of aging; a product that celebrates the characteristics of the noble Nebbiolo grape.
The Barolo Leon Riserva is being boxed in wooden crates that hold six horizontal bottles, and each bottle is wrapped in tissue paper decorated with the winery logo.
The 19th was my birthday and I drank Barolo Leon Riserva: what better way to celebrate my 34 years, that icy January day? From that day, this wine has been officially on the market, so you can try it, too. Taste it and let me know what you think.
