Winemaker's Notes

This Barolo reflects the most typical style of the wine's virtuosity and aristocracy. Ethereal nose and aromas of withered roses fail to suppress a slight fragrance of underbrush, which makes it extremely well-balanced and rounded. With its excellent acidity and tannicity, it can have a very lengthy cellar life: 15-25 years.

Pairing suggestions: red meats, also richly-cooked braised meats game cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"Barolo Prapó is a chewy, fruit-driven wine with a broad array of aromas that include black cherry, chocolate powder, creamy vanilla and exotic spice. Cinnamon, clove and ginger all appear in the mouth and are powered by the wine’s thick texture and deep concentration. Let it age two or three more years and pair it with roast lamb or pork."
92 Points

"Deep ruby hue. Pretty nose of wet stone and shy black fruit with an alluring whiff of sweet fruit. A well-structured wine with an appealing balance of red berry, stone fruit and rose petal nuances. Elegant close echoes the palate with an added crisp edge lent by dry tannins."
92 Points

"Pretty aromas of ripe strawberry, flowers and cedar follow through to a full body, with lots of ripe, almost raisiny fruit and a long, velvety, fruity aftertaste. Best after 2011."
91 Points

"The 2004 Barolo Prapo, from a vineyard in Serralunga, is richer and weightier than the Brunate. This fresh, structured wine is loaded with sweet dark plums and prunes in liqueur, vanilla and sweet toasted oak. It offers outstanding length and finessed tannins that frame its core of dark fruit. It too is made in an international style."

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
