Gemma Barolo Giblin Riserva 2006
Awards "Decanter Gold Regional Trophy Best in Show"
Vinification: In medium toasted Allier barriques for 24 months,
with further refinement of about 6 months in bottle
Tasting Notes: An imposing structure of Barolo with a beautiful
ruby red color and garnet. The nose offers intense aromas of red
berries, with a distinct feeling of raspberry enriched by a hint of
dried rose, spices and hints of burnt wood.
Food Pairing: Main dishes of red meat, game and cheeses.
Nebbiolo: one of the world’s five greatest grapes – and here offering a smorgasbord of red rose, sour red cherry and delicately spicy aromas and flavors is the Gemma Line which has been winning awards for years.
2006 was a fantastic vintage for Barolo, a year of high but harmonious acidity, powerful, noble tannins, deep silky fruit and unbelievable ageing potential.
It can’t be a coincidence that Gemma’s 1997, 1999, 2005 and 2006 Giblin Barolo were all awarded five stars, outstanding ratings or Gold medals by Decanter in past years.
