Cascina del Torcc Barolo DOCG Red Italian Wine 750mL


This is a crazy cheap Barolo from a great vintage. Drinking really well now it is made for immediate gratification alonside: braised meats, grilled beef, lamb, duck, risotto, especially with mushrooms, hard cheeses but not too pungent.  With the great structure of the 2016’s this will also benefit nicely from some cellaring
