Winemaker's Notes

The colour is an intense glossy garnet, with orange reflections. The bouquet is ethereal, with hints of violets, blackberry jam, licorice and cloves. The palate is dry and austere, with a lingering hint of almonds.
 
"Likely to be the best Barolo normale of the recent string of excellent years. 91-93 points ." - IWC

Barolo is, without a doubt, the most fascinating and emotional of all our wines. It has an air of aristocracy and even a domineering personality. Yet our Barolo is rich with hidden hues, which are enjoyed by those who take the time to savour this wine. Our Barolo is intentionally "traditional": austere and important, a wine to be approached thoughtfully. It is not easy, but it is unique and splendid. Both our name and our reputation have been connected with this magnificent wine for over one hundred years. And even though it is never easy, we have always been blessed with the satisfaction and emotion this wine gives us.

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...
