Winemaker's Notes

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,
Wine Advocate

"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

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.
