CALICE BAROLO - 2012 0.75L - 6 bottles - Villadoria 46,5€/bottle
At the apex of this journey is taste, the sense that in some ways includes all the others, uniting them in an embrace. 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.
