Pairing Wines with Barolo Braised Beef

Th bold, luscious flavor for one of Piedmont’s signature recipes: Barolo Braised Beef. This dish makes for the perfect dinner come the cooler months of fall, but which wine to pair with it? Luca Maroni, a sensorial wine analyst, recommends three fine pairings.

Barolo Braised Beef with a Barbaresco

Barbaresco La Casa in Collina Vite Colte

“The wines of Vite Colte become better and better in every sense, even for making classics of superior caliber such as the smooth Barbaresco La Casa in Collina.”

This wine chosen by Luca Maroni for pairing with the Barolo braised beef has a deep red color tending toward garnet. On the nose it is intense and complex with notes of ripe fruit – especially blackberries and blueberries. Notes of tobacco and coffee are not lacking. On the palate it is rich and smooth, with tannins that are sweet and well-integrated. It presents with a long finish with hints of strawberry and vanilla.

Barolo I Tre Pais Broccardo

“An excellent concentration and persuasiveness in euphonic cohesion is revealed in this wine that has a great spicy persuasiveness that deepens this Barolo I Tre Pais.”

The wine is a beautiful red color with orange hues that become more and more pronounced as it ages longer. Spicy oak aromas of vanilla and licorice add more levels to this great wine. The palate is immediately both fresh and rich, then soft and balanced. A pleasant Barolo with hints of citrus and refined tannins.

Taurasi Vigne Guadagno

“A superb concentration brought out by the various wines presented by Vigne Guadagno. This Taurasi, which, accentuating even more its extractive richness, proves to be a champion of admirable expressive power.”

Made from 100% Aglianico grapes, the Taurasi Vigne Guadagno, the third wine selected by Luca Maroni for pairing with the Barolo braised beef, is harvested in the last week of October, after which the aging process lasts 24 months in Slavonian oak barrels and 12 months in the bottle.
