Massimo Rattalino Barolo Chinato sel. 333 (500ml)
£44.00 (inc VAT)
Jaegermeister won't cure your flu, but this botanical infused Barolo will help warm your heart and soul.
Medicine is such a drag these days. Feeling under the weather? Umberto's Nonna (an Italian grandma that can use a wooden spoon) used to give him a cheeky dash of Barolo Chinato in warm water. Botanicals and only the best vintages of Barolo make this after dinner digestif. Serve it cool in the summer for a refreshing after dinner drink. Or serve it with a bear skin rug and roaring fire in winter. If Grappa had a anti establishment grandson, it would be this flannel wearing bearded cinchona tree chopping Chinato.
Land is land. Wine is wine. Massimo's wines argue otherwise. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Alba, lies Massimo Rattalino's small vineyard in the recognised UNESCO World Heritage site, Barbaresco. Prudent and passionate for this legendary land, Massimo looks after his vineyards with the utmost care, and is guided by a respect for tradition.
