Kilolo broke the rules. She doesn't want to carry more than two examples of any producer, but when the winery is on-point, the rules need to be broken. The Nebbiolo grape is on the come-up and this Barolo is not only ready to drink but could stand to lay down in your closet/cellar for another 5-10 years, easily. Foods that go well would include a variety of meats (gamey or not) and also grilled veggies. Enjoy now or later.
Dreaming of one day being able to produce Barolo, the Faccenda family purchased this winery in 2003. The vineyards lie just outside of Monforte, the vines are 30-40 years old and the soil is limestone. Guidobono’s wines are textbook interpretations of the indigenous grapes of the Langhe. Fruit-driven, juicy, soft, and rich.
