Poderi Ornati Langhe Rosso DOC
Langhe Rosso DOC is made with estate-grown grapes form Barbera vineyards. The Ornati wine comes from the blending, in varying percentages, or Barbera, Nebbiolo and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are separately in French oak barriques before being blended and bottled. Visual aspects: Brilliant, deep garnet red with ruby highlights. It is intense and persistent, ethereal, with fruit sensations, discreet and delicate notes from the wood reminiscent of vanilla, brushwood and tobacco.
Dry, full, warm, smooth, with notable structure, suitably tannic, balanced.
Complex and persistent finish reminiscent of milk chocolate.
Raw beef or veal prepared the Piedmontese way –
Grilled fillet steak
Beef or veal dish with wild mushrooms or truffles
Cheese. - a powerful Castelmagno or Gorgonzola piccante would certainly knock the stuffing out of a delicate Barolo but milder cheeses such as robiolo, grana padano and ‘toma’-style cheeses are delicious.
