      Go Back
Tasting Notes:
This tastes very modern but that's probably just the ripe vintage and whiff of new oak which helps to soften the tannins. Elegant and very fragrant and harmonious with scents of ripe fruit, vanilla and tar. This is gorgeous stuff, a modern classic.
Drinking Dates:
2015 to 2027
Cépagement:
100% Nebbiolo from a single hectare in the Galina sector.
Soil:
Limestone with fine sand.
Upbringing:
Aged for two years in tonneaux (barrels) of Allier oak.
Critic Reviews:
"Here’s a territory-driven Barolo with earthy notes of mushroom, barrel and pipe tobacco. You’ll also pick up hints of bacon fat or cured meat with tight, astringent tannins on the close. Hold for five years or more." 89/100 (Wine Enthusiast)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
