Ellena Giuseppe Barolo La Morra DOCG 2017
Region: La Morra, Italy
Agricola Ellena Giuseppe is located in the prized commune of 'La Morra'. From 1966 through the mid-2000s the Ellenas sold fruit to local co-ops and that all changed with the changing of the guard and young Mateo taking over the property with his father in 2009.
Today, three generations work side by side weaving tradition and innovation. Mateo worked for both Elio Altare of La Morra and Giacoma Bologna of Rocchetta Tanaro bringing a bit of style from both of these producers fusing modernity with classic wine making.
Bright red fruit with tinges of violets, tobacco and citrus rind. Medium-bodied with lightly chewy tannins, bright acidity and more orange rind and a twist of nutty vanilla right at the end. Really pretty and balanced. Needs time to soften, but already a beauty.
Decant before drinking.
