Ruby red in colour; notes of violet, rose and red current are rich and persistent.  On the palate the wine is fresh, harmonious and soft with delicate tannin and lush red fruit.  A more masculine style of Barolo but still very pleasing and approachable. 

Parusso Barolo DOCG is a combination of grapes from both Monfrote d'Alba vineyards as well as the Parusso family vineyards in Castiglione Falletto.  After a long, cold maceration, it goes through spontaneous alcoholic fermentation using indgenous yeasts and without the addition of sulphites.  It then spends 18 months in large barrels with contact with indigenous yeast and then rested in bottle before release.  It's ruby red colour is beautiful and inviting.  Notes of violet, rose and red current are rich and persistent.  On the palate the wine is fresh, harmonious and soft with delicate tannin and lush red fruit.  A more masculine style of Barolo but still very pleasing and approachable.  We recommend opening up the wine at least 1 hour before serving.

“I want to give everything, I only live once and I want to give everything I have,” says Marco Parusso from the eponymous wine estate in Monforte d´Alba in Barolo.

You can feel that in the wines. There’s a lot of everything. Fruit. Colour. Tannins. “Tannins are the hallmark of Barolo and they should be there,” says Marco. Less is more, does not exist here. That’s for sure.
