These two wines are produced by Carlin de Paolo. A family winery in their 4th generation of producing wine located in Piedmonte region of Italy.
These two wines, although made from the same grape a very different. You will fine the Nebbiolo lighter, high in acid and lower in tannins. The Barolo is bigger, more tannic and requires a minimum aging of 3 years.
On the palate, lots of red fruit. Sour cherry and red licorice show them selves mid palate and linger into the finish. As the wine opens I found the cola, cocoa and anise notes. Very nice acidity in this wine.
This wine retails for $18.99 and can be found one wine.com
Aromas of strong red berries filled the glass.
The palate had flavors or raspberry, with a hint of watermelon and sage.
The wine had nice acidity that really cut through the bolognese sauce I made with ground lamb and sweet sausage.
This wine retails for $39.99 and can be found on wine.com
