Winemaker's Notes

The Brunate and Le Coste grapes were vinified in different ways: the Brunate fruit was kept apart, and went into a special riserva that rested in the cellar in large bottles for ten years and was then put in standard bottles, while the other lots, following one of the most hallowed Barolo traditions, were meticulously blended together.

Since 1993 there are no longer a "standard" Barolo and a Brunate Riserva, but two different pairs of blends, all sourced from the same 4 estate vineyards. This is the cuvée of Brunate and Le Coste (10,000 bottles).

Critical Acclaim

"A ripe, sweet cherry- and raspberry-flavored red, accented by white pepper, cinnamon and floral notes. This is generous and vibrant, with a pleasant hint of astringency on the finish. Very elegant, in a traditional style, where finesse meets intensity."
96 Points

"The 2007 Barolo Brunate-Le Coste is a regal, aristocratic Barolo. Firm tannins keep some of the extroverted qualities of the vintage in check. This shows marvelous inner minerality and coolness, with deep layers of fruit, menthol, licorice and tar that fill out the wine’s broad shouldered frame. The Brunte-Le Coste shuts down pretty quickly in the glass, suggesting it may be headed for a period of dormancy. Today, it is flat-out stunning. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2038."

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...
