Tasting Notes

This is a young Barolo that is very aromatic and fresh with dried flowers, plums and light cloves and nutmeg character. Full body, with firm tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Balanced and refined. More linear than the Brunate with more depth this year. Better in 2016.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2014

This balances cherry and raspberry fruit with leather, tobacco and licorice notes. Elegant and tightly wound, with a refined structure holding the elements together. Exhibits fine length, finishing with spice and mineral details. Best from 2017 through 2033. 300 cases made.
