Food and wine pairing :  

«The 2010 Barolo represents a terrific effort and shows a level of aromatic purity and intensity that sets it apart. Soft cherry and blackberry is enhanced by bursts of clove, leather, cola and exotic tobacco. Oberto’s use of oak renders spice tones that are enduring but not overwhelming. Soft tannins and a richly layered mouthfeel make this wine appropriate for near-term drinking.» -ML Wine Advocate
