NV Damilano Chinato Barolo
“The Barolo chinato can be used as a digestif, but can also be enjoyed as an aperitif with ice and seltzer. In addition, it is an excellent vin brùlè, if served warm with lemon rind. It can be appreciated as a dessert wine, served as a pairing to pastries and chocolate-based desserts.”
