Marziano Abbona, Barolo La Pieve 2020

Get to know: Marziano Abbona, Barolo La Pieve 

Tasting Note

An excellent example of this most iconic of Italian wines. La Pieve is a Barolo that can be enjoyed today. In the glass it has a nose of ripe fruit and delicate spice and liquorice that give a remarkable expressiveness, unique of this wine. On the palate the texture is soft and creamy. It invites you to enjoy it immediately, but there's also a lot of structure and richness that provide the potential for considerable aging. Give this a couple of hours in a decanter to allow it to open up and really express itself.

Indulge in this with a fillet steak or a truffle risotto.

Kate Says

"Barolo is a wine needs a bit of care but really rewards with layers of expressive flavour. Marziano Abbona make really well crafted wines with lots of character. Definitely a special treat for the dinner table or a gift for a red wine lover."

Producer Info

The wines of Marziano Abbona tell stories: The work in the vineyards and the scruple for high quality; the joy of rediscovering, year after year, the wine and its complexity of flavors and aromas of the Langhe; and the curiosity for new discoveries and more subtle refinements.

Every wine by the Abbona winery expresses its uniqueness through the wonder of its intimate and personal character. Because every wine contains within it a story – but every story should be accompanied with the right wine.

Made from grapes cultivated in Monforte d'Alba, this Barolo has a wonderful elegance to its bouquet, good strength, and excellent alcohol. The grapes from which this Barolo is obtained give great structure, aromatic finesse, and an average alcohol percentage of 15%. Just a bit fresher and more immediate than their Pressenda and Ravera labels, this can already be enjoyed in its first years in the bottle. Serve at 18° C (64° F) after bringing it to room temperature for at least 24 hours.
