Winemaker Notes

The Barolo wine par excellence, it is made with Nebbiolo grapes coming from three vineyards located in different towns of the DOCG area: La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d’Alba. Vinified separately in large steel and/or concrete tanks for one year, it is also aged separately in large-size French oak barrels. It is then left to rest in bottle for another 12 months before release.

Bright garnet-red colored with a pale orange tinge. An unmistakable, intense, persistent and very pleasant bouquet. Aromas of sweet spices, soft fruit, mountain hay and licorice. Dry, soft and velvety on the palate. Great structure and aromatic persistence.

Best served at about 65° F in a large balloon wine glass. It is excellent with game and meat in general and pairs wonderfully with cheese, both fresh and aged.

Definitely an age-worthy wine, especially in the best vintages.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of rose, crushed herb, red berry and a balsamic note take shape in the glass. Elegant, fresh and poised, the palate offers black raspberry, red cherry baking spice and a hint of licorice framed in youthful but polished tannins. Drink 2020–2028.

James Suckling
Soft and pretty 2013 with dried berry, cedar, tar and dried flower character. Medium to full body, chewy tannins and a savory finish. Really pretty now but better in two years.
