The people over at Alma Soul have created a special line of wines to celebrate the great grapes of Piemonte. Hand picked grapes go into these special wines using only the finest vines. Such attention to quality creates superb wines, but also limits the quantity made. Their “Agit Optima” line of Arbeta wines are only produced in exceptional years. According to the Alma Soul website, “Agit Optima is an old Latin saying meaning “(if you do something)’ do it your best.”
The Arbeta, Barolo, Agit Optima, Bussia, 2009 is light ruby red in the glass. Aromas of rose, violet, earth and spice tease the senses. The mouth feel is very rich with wild berries and rose petal with silky tannins and a long dry finish.
Enjoy this Barolo on its own or even better with grilled steaks of even braised game dishes.
