Winemaker Notes

Ruby red with garnet highlights, this wine offers aromas of roses, violets, tobacco, underbrush, spices and a slight touch of vanilla. On the palate, dense, closely-woven tannins start out smooth, almost velvety, and then explode in the palate with fruit. Long, flavorful finish. Excellent served with flavorful meat dishes and mature cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator
Fine harmony and sweet cherry and berry flavors are the hallmarks of this rich Barolo. Licorice, spice and tobacco flavors add depth as it stays focused and persistent through the finish. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated.
