Winemaker's Notes

Bricco delle Viole is a magic vineyard. Its gentle slope outcrops from the mist that hides the hills late in the autumn, just like a ridge. The higher position and a long maturity season produce aromatic complexity and finesse alongside a rich body, unknown at lower altitudes. The wines of Bricco delle Viole stand out for the balance between alcohol, acidity and tannins, always velvety and elegant.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Barolo Bricco delle Viole has just been bottled, but that doesn’t seem to get in the way of a terrific showing. It is a beautiful wine graced with tons of delineation and sheer intensity. The aromas and flavors build effortlessly to a hugely impressive, dazzling finish. The 2007 shows the volume and depth of the vintage, but with the expressive bouquet and overall harmony that define the finest wines of the year. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. "
