About the Winery:
The story of the Garesio family starts in the vineyards of Salento, where Negroamaro grapes were pressed by bare feet, and reaches the Mondonio hills in Lower Monferrato in the Asti region. Since 2010, the family has acquired approximately 64 hectares of land, 21 of which are under vines, divided among Serralunga d’Alba, the heart of Barolo, Perletto in Alta Langa, Incisa Scapaccino and Castelnuovo Calcea in Monferrato.

About this Wine:
The Garesio Serralunga d’Alba Barolo is produced with 100% Nebbiolo grapes cultivated in Cerretta and Gianetto crus, within the commune of Serralunga d’Alba, adjacent to the Garesio cellar. Serralunga d’Alba soils are some of the oldest, dating back to the Lequio formation (Helvetian), and are rich in sandstone and limestone, giving intense brick-colored wines with strong structure and thick, enveloping tannins. However, the different expositions and elevations of these vineyards, combined with the prevalance of sandy soils, result in softer and more balanced Barolos. This wine is made with certified organic grapes.

Tasting Notes: 
Brilliant garnet red color. The nose is very fresh and elegannt with aromas of strawberry, cherry, red berries, rose, violet, and licorice. On the palate it is full-bodied, rich, balanced, with delicate, elegant tannins.

Ratings & Reviews


91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The Garesio 2015 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba is a spicy and robust interpretation of Nebbiolo that delivers a very developed savory side. There is dark primary fruit at the core of the wine, but more attention is drawn to aromas of spice, tobacco and campfire embers. The heat of the vintage may have played a small role in drying out some of the wine's fruity freshness. You also get the power and concentration that are characteristics of this comune within the Barolo appellation. I would suggest a near or medium-term drinking window." – Monica Larner (Jul 2020)

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Aromas of violet, nutmeg and tobacco slowly take shape on this. The solid palate delivers sour cherry, clove and black pepper alongside taut but refined tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2021–2028." – KK (12/1/2019)
