This wine from the Baroli family is an excellent classic Barolo. Light in color with so much power, texture and essence that it explodes in your glass. The Barolo Normale is excellent and with an hour or so of decanting, it becomes wonderfully elegant. This wine is a great complement to the white truffle. Enjoy some this weekend or before the season ends in early January.
It has happened. Fall is here and yesterday the white truffles arrived. Meaning it is time to break out the Barolo and go nuts. Whip up a little risotto, some tagliatelle and perhaps, some soft scrambled eggs or beef tartare. The traditional pairing is, of course, Barolo, the good neighbor of the white truffle.
Raschera Cow Italy $30/lb
Hailing from the Alps near the Barolo and white-truffle-dominated-Piedmont-region of Italy, Raschera is a real delight. Über pungent and earthy, it is a perfect complement to a glass of Barolo or try it melted on a pizza with a few shavings of white truffle to enhance the experience.
