I Siglati Barolo, Italy

I Siglati Barolo DOCG 2005
Casa Sant'Orsola, Fratelli Martini
Piemonte, Italy
Ruby red colour, medium intensive. Nose: wonderful aromatical with rose and violet tones, vanilla, herbal. Palate: dark cherries, chocolate, tobacco. Medium bodied. The tannins are plenty and significant but still kind of friendly. High acidity and nice finish - gives you time to enjoy. 13,5 % abv. Nebbiolo. For me definitely a to-go-with-food-wine.

Named after the Saint, the brothers Secondo and Luigi Martini started their wine production with great passion in 1947. Today this is a big enterprize, established on many world markets, strong in Germany, England and the U.S. They produce wines from different regions of Italy and of many different types, like Asti etc. Pretty impressive barrique cellar is to be seen on their website.

Perfect wine for the darker meat dishes that can match if they have some good character of their own. We had it with steaks, topped with blue cheese. And the rest of the wine went into a nice beefstew - which enabled us to enjoy the goodness once again, even if in another dimension.

(This recipe can be found in Swedish on my vinegar blog)
