Wine Expert Note:

Ca'Viola Barolo Sottocastello di Novello is an exceptional wine that showcases the elegance and complexity of Barolo. This wine is produced in the Sottocastello di Novello subregion, known for its ideal terroir for Nebbiolo grapes. On the nose, this Barolo offers a captivating bouquet of red fruits, such as cherries and raspberries, accompanied by floral notes of violets and roses. There are also hints of earthiness, with aromas of truffles and forest floor. The palate is equally impressive, with a harmonious balance of fruit, acidity, and tannins. The red fruit flavors continue to shine, complemented by savory notes of licorice, tobacco, and spices like cinnamon and cloves. The tannins are firm yet refined, providing structure and a long, lingering finish. It pairs wonderfully with rich and hearty dishes, such as braised meats, game, or aged cheeses. Ca'Viola Barolo Sottocastello di Novello is a true gem of the Piedmont region, showcasing the artistry and craftsmanship of its winemakers. Read more

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
