Winemaker's Notes

Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the winery followed by a 7-8 day maceration in stainless steel tanks. They are then fermented in rotofermenters. After malolactic fermentation the wine is racked and aged for 12 months in French oak and then for an additional 24 months in large French casks.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Barolo Pressenda is bold, dark and beautiful. Sweet black cherries, menthol, spices and licorice all come together in this deep, satisfying Barolo. The Pressenda shows tremendous integrity in its fruit, serious length and fabulous overall balance. The muscular, powerful finish suggests it will drink well for a number of years, but first it needs a few years in the cellar. This is a fabulous effort."
94 Points

"Eucalyptus, balsamic and licorice aromas signal this Barolo, whose cherry and tobacoo flavors add depth and interest. Dense and traditional in style, with sweet, ripe fruit and pointed tannins. Fine length."
93 Points

"This is an especially delicious Barolo that relies on dark concentration and impressive aromatic intensity to make its point. Balsam notes of cola and root beer are set against bright fruit and spice. The wine's solid structure is enhanced by a soft, velvety finish."
93 Points

"Lush and ripe nose; smooth texture; dense and meaty with elegance and lovely minerals and spice and tangy acidity; built to last."

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...
