Appearance: Deep garnet red with bright hues which naturally evolve with age. Bouquet: Intense, very complex, offering a wide range of notes; with remarkable red fruit combined with floral and spicy hints. Especially after a few years of ageing, this Barolo shows all the elegance and charm that only Nebbiolo grapes can offer Flavour: robust, rich and austere. It perfectly reflects the great complexity of the soil in Serralunga d'Alba. The perfect Barolo for long ageing. It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C. Food Pairings: The elegant companion for important rice and pasta dishes, such as risotto cooked in Barolo, and rich and tasty main courses, such as roast meats. After a few years of ageing, this Barolo expresses its considerable potential just as well when sipped as a wine for thought and served with hard and medium-hard cheeses.

Wine Enthusiast0 Aromas of new leather, ripe dark berry, vineyard dust and a whiff of smoky flint waft out of the glass along with floral and balsamic notes. The full-bodied palate shows great energy and intensity, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, ripe cranberry, white pepper and clove framed in youthfully assertive, refined tannins and bright acidity. A mineral note wraps up the lingering finish. With time, this will develop even greater complexity. Drink 2023-2053.

Wine SpectatorCherry and cigar box aromas introduce this juicy, linear red. Strawberry, cherry, floral and chalky mineral flavors are persistent and pure as this retreats into a tannic structure. Shows terrific length, so be patient. Best from 2022 through 2038. 1,066 cases made.
