      Go Back
Tasting Notes:
As is consistent with all the Manzone range, the fruit dominates here although there is no doubting the impact of the tannins lurking in support of the sweet cherry flavours. Lots going on here. Barolo as it should be!
Drinking Dates:
2016 to 2026
Cépagement:
100% Nebbiolo
Upbringing:
Maceration with the skins for 15 days at 28-31°C. Aged 50% in 25 Hectolitres casks, 50% in 700 litre barrels for 24 months. Bottled 36 months after the harvest
Critic Reviews:
"From the highest and best-exposed part of the Gramolere, [this] is the most firm and structured of the 2006 Barolos. Sweet herbs, cherries, red berries, tobacco and cedar come together in a beguiling, contemplative expression of Nebbiolo." 91-94/100 (Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate issue 187)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
