The particular composition of the ground confers on the wine a great balance in the scent and in the structure. The color is intense red. The smell is heterogeneous, with a clean scent of dry and sweet fruit and floral aromas.The wine is full bodied with a solid acidity that gives it more longevity suitable to stand the test of time.
This wine is suitable for tasty and elaborate meat dishes and for dry mature cheeses.
"The estate's 2006 Barolo is a jewel of a wine. It is a Burgundian Barolo graced with subtle red fruits, menthol, licorice and anise, all of which come together on a deceptively medium-bodied frame. This shows wonderful intensity in a finessed, understated style that is impossible to resist. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Medium red. Aromatic nose combines strawberry, peppery spices, smoke, iron and menthol; very Serralunga. Supple and seamless, with a sweetness leavened by pepper and herbal nuances. Plenty of Serralunga spice here. Still a bit reduced, and rather tannic but not dry today.
Range: 89-90 Points"
