Wine Expert Note:

The Barolo Riserva "Vigna dei Dardi" by the Fantino brothers is an incredibly intense and profound wine. It presents itself with a robust ruby-red hue in the glass and offers intense aromas of red fruits and tobacco on the palate, making these its defining characteristics. The wine boasts a long, complex, and intense finish, as one would naturally expect from a Barolo Riserva of this caliber. Fantino's Barolos pair exceptionally well with game dishes, beef, and slow-cooked preparations. Serving temperature should be between 16-18 degrees Celsius. It is advisable to open and decant it ahead of time to fully appreciate its qualities.
