Earthy & Spicy

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Garnet red color. The nose is typical of this type of wine with fruity, black cherry, and spicy notes. Full bodied and supple, with silky tannins and a persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Moderately saturated medium red. Subtle, pure aromas of raspberry, cinnamon, rose petal and truffle. Silky on entry, then shows superb mid-palate lift, with harmonious acidity framing and intensifying the strawberry and spice flavors. Offers superb density without weight. Finishes subtle and very long. These two outstanding Brunate examples from 2007 offer great early appeal but I still find the 2008s to be a bit more urgent and structured."
94 Points

"Menthol, eucalyptus and cherry aromas and flavors highlight this elegant, high-toned red. Lacks generosity for the vintage and is balanced toward the alcohol, but the flavors linger. Best from 2015 through 2028."
90 Points

"The 2007 Barolo Vecchie Vigne delle Brunate is quite a bit richer and darker than the straight Brunate, but lacks that wine’s sheer appeal. This may be a case where too much of a good thing is, well, too much of a good thing. The finish is rather clipped, and the wine never seems to really come together. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027."
90 Points

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.
