Customer Reviews

Ruby red in colour with garnet reflections. The ethereal nose opens with focused cherry and strawberry, rose petal, and hints of spice. Elegant and fresh on the palate with notes of bright red fruit, firm tannins, and a long finish.

"This is fruity, with a smooth texture framing the cherry, raspberry and spice flavours. Grace notes of liquorice and mineral peer out from the finish as this winds down gracefully on the palate. Best from 2019 through 2033."

"Lots of clove, nutmeg and berry character in this young Barolo. Full and juicy with plenty of fruit and velvety tannins. Extremely long and intense."
James Suckling - 93 Points

"This opens with earthy—almost funky—aromas of game, truffle, leather, a hint of overripe dark-skinned fruit and a balsamic note. The palate offers black cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and chopped herb alongside ripe tannins. An anise note closes the finish."
Wine Enthusiast magazine - 91 Points

"The 2012 Barolo sees fruit sourced from various spots around the Barolo township. This is a classic expression with a tight tannic structure and good tension in terms of mouthfeel. This was a hot vintage, with concentrated heat at the height of the summer. This forced a slightly shorter growing season and the bouquet is consequently less nuanced and complex next to the slightly cooler years. Yet the results achieved here are graceful and fine. This a good alternative for near and medium-term drinking."
