CALICE BAROLO - 2012 0.75L - 1 bottle - Villadoria
Calice represents both the complexity and the disarming simplicity of something that tends towards perfection, that contains everything, like the chalice of life, or simply a wine glass. The perfection of the circle that gathers everything into itself. In the same way, Barolo, a wine noted for its longevity and structure, becomes the symbol of this journey taken with patience and love, like a climb towards the top of a mountain.
