The typicality of Barbaresco Cà Grossa is shown by the elegant and refined nose and palate. It is the expression of a marly soil containing 15% of fine sand; it has a red ruby colour with slight shades of garnet. The wine has a very delicate aroma, well-balanced and complex, with hints of ripe red fruit, spices and violet. The palate presents enveloping tannins and an excellent persistence.
