Guyot

Harvest:
Manual harvested into small boxes mid October

Serving temperature: 
16-18°C

Food pairings: 
Consider dishes with braised or roasted dark meats and rich sauces. One should also keep in mind that Barolo’s high acidity helps it pair beautifully with richer, fattier meats. Pork and duck both complement a classic Barolo, as does a tomato and pork-based ragu. Perfect to tasty cheeses. A must companion for tajarin pasta and white tartufo

Storage potential: 
Can easily be stored for at least 20 years and will only peak after 10-15 years
