Garnet red color. Intense, elegant nose; kirsch, currant jam, and vanilla. Full-bodied, concentrated, complex, tannic quite intense and persistent flavor. Perfect with Piedmontese cheeses and grilled red meat.
" The estate's Barolo has always been a standout and the 2004 is no exception. It is a perfumed wine that presents the essence of dried roses, plums, cherries and herbs with a medium-bodied, feminine personality. A sweet note of tar lingers on the long, resonating finish. The Barolo is made from a variety of vineyards, including Vignolo, Vignane, Via Nuova and Monvigliero. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016." 91 Points,
"Aromas of ripe strawberry, plum jam and cream. Full-bodied, with round, velvety, chewy tannins and a tight, fruity aftertaste. Needs time to open. Very pretty. Best after 2011. 1,000 cases imported." 91 Points
