About this Wine:
Stemming from the Nebbiolo grapes of the oldest vineyard of the Einaudi estates in Barolo.
A great wine which ages well, of a brilliant garnet red with touches of amber and distinctive orange tinges which intensify with age, of an intense and persistent bouquet, of great body and full taste, austere and velvety.
The tannic characteristics guarantee a long life in bottle. With time it acquires complexity as the ethereal aromas of spices, truffles and leather that substitute the fruitiness of the first years of its life.
The annual production is of 14.000 bottles.

Wine making:
Fermented in steel tanks under strict temperature control (30°C-32°C), post-fermentation maceration, racked after 14/16 days, decanted, then gotten induced malolactic treatment and completed always at a controlled temperature. Matured in oak casks for many months, then a long refinement in bottles.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - James Suckling:
"Love the decadent, sweet-tobacco, stem and ripe-fruit aromas to this one. Full-bodied, layered and soft with ripe tannins and so much subtle fruit. Sexy is the only word to describe it. Drink in 2020." - (July 11, 2017)

92 Points - Antonio Galloi's Vinous:
"The 2013 Barolo Terlo is a very pretty and expressive entry-level Barolo from Einaudi. Ample, generous and inviting, the 2013 possesses striking richness and intensity. A host of dark cherry, plum, spice, blood orange and pomegranate hit the palate in a forward, powerful Barolo endowed with considerable fruit as well as structural intensity. Far from an easy going, entry-level Barolo, the Terlo possesses serious depth. Rose petal, menthol, sage and tobacco infuse the exotic finish. " - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2017)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A broad, muscular style, with dense tannins. Cherry, menthol and mineral flavors abound, but the tannins feel less ripe and integrated here. Best from 2021 through 2035. 600 cases made." – BS (Web Only - 2017)
