Notes from the Winemaker:
Ruby red with garnet reflections and a complex bouquet of raspberries, strawberries and spearmint; the palate expresses an immediate roundness with mellow flavors and texture, which are all balanced by lovely tannins and a pleasant finish.

Vineyard:
One vine yard in the Monforte district, one in Serralunga and another vineyard in Castiglione Falletto. There are about two hectares (nearly five acres) of low Guyot - trained, southeast - facing vines averaging 4,000 - 4,500 per hectare (1,620 - 1,821 per acre); 20 - 30 year old vines planted in clay soil.

Aging: Aged in 225 - liter French barrique for about 24 months, followed by three months in bottle.

Ratings & Reviews



93 Points - James Suckling:
"Extremely floral and perfumed with some cool blue fruit for the vintage. Full-bodied with chewy, polished tannins and a compact mouth feel. Tight, refined and structured. Try after 2023." - (11 Aug, 2020 )

90 Points - Vinous:
"The 2016 Barolo is a soft, fruity Barolo to drink now and over the next few years, while the flavors remain vibrant. This is an especially silky, open-knit style. Succulent dark cherry, red plum, flowers and sweet spice are all nicely melded together. I would prefer to drink the 2016 over the next few years. Once again, this is a terrific wine in its peer group." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2020)
