Wine Description

(From 2004 Vintage)

This 100% Nebbiolo is aristocratic, austere and harmonious. It is full bodied and mouth-filling with a finish that is long and lingering.  Excellent with game, red meats, truffle dishes and aged cheeses.

91 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate:

"Abbona’s 2004 Barolo Pressenda, from a vineyard in Monforte, reveals greater freshness and delineation in its aromatics, qualities that are also found on the palate, where the wine offers plenty of perfumed red fruit, spices, minerals and menthol with notable vibrancy. This Barolo comes together beautifully as it sits in the glass. There is an energy and vitality here that I find especially appealing. The tannins need another year or two at a minimum to settle down, but this Barolo offers much potential. The Pressenda spent a year in new French oak followed by two years in Slavonian oak casks. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019. "

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2003 Vintage) Intense carnet red, with ageing it verges on orange-coloured shades. nce Intense, it recalls the withered eglantine and violet. Taste Harmonious, dry and velvety.
