This is a very rich Barolo, dense, with supple
tannins, full concentrated ripe fruit, elegant and
powerful, with an extremely long life. Produced in
small quantities and only in excellent vintages.
"Barolo Ornato is a beautiful wine: rich in flavor, intensity and personality. You can taste the quality of the fruit here thanks to the pristine notes of cherry, wild berry, spice and ginger that emerge from the nose. Oak notes of vanilla and cinnamon are nicely integrated and folded within the wine's dense, supple texture."
"Good deep red. Complex, vibrant nose offers red plum, redcurrant and minerals; higher pitched and more vinous than the basic bottling. The most complex and complete in the mouth of these wines, displaying lovely perfumed flavors of cherry, plum, minerals and truffle. Firmly built, powerfully structured and impressively long and aromatic on the back end, with big but ripe tannins. This one should enjoy a long and positive evolution in bottle. 92-94 points. "

"A touch of wood adds warmth and spice, with vanilla and smoke notes accenting black cherry, licorice and leather flavors. The muscular tannins add power to this Barolo's well-toned profile. Best from 2014 through 2030."
"This is earthy and decadent, with ripe plums, berries and vanilla bean character. Full and velvety. So yummy. So much going on here."
