Winemaker Notes

Aromas of rose petals and dried cherries give way to flavors of plum, black cherry, spice with tight grained tannins and a firm structure and a long, complex finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 96
Decanter
Intense aromas of perfume and sweet Indian incense, fresh oranges and generous cherry fruit on the palate, give way to powerful but well-integrated tannins. A wine with great ageing potential.
JS 92
James Suckling
Aromas of cherry and sweet tobacco follow through to a medium body with firm and slightly astringent tannins that need some time to soften. In the end, linear and classy. Nice combination of fruit and fine tannins. Drink or hold.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Barolo impresses for its purity of fruit and its seamless integration. There are no rough edges here and the wine glides clean over the palate, leaving a long and silky impression. Wild berry fruits and light touches of toasted spice add to the intensity. Smoke and crushed flint make for pretty contouring.

Casa E. di Mirafiore, Italy
Casa E. di Mirafiore  Winery Image
Casa E. di Mirafiore is a historic brand in the world of Italian wine. The name is both new and old, it first becoming established in the 1870s, rising to international renown only to disappear in the third decade of the following century. The name which remained dormant for more than seventy years until its reappearance today.

Mirafiore wines give expression to a vision, to a precise point of view promoting for some time by Fontanafredda's Bio-nature Reserve: eco-compatibility, the green philosophy. Meaning respect for the environment and the health of the end consumer. Ecological awareness is imprinted first and foremost on the work in the vineyards, where chemical fertilizers and weed-killers are banned, and pest treatments are substantially reduced in order to produce clean grapes with chemical residues approaching zero. The next step takes place in the winery, through a drastic reduction in the use of sulphites compared to legally-permitted limits, and preference given to native yeasts rather than industrial strains. Finally, rounding off the two previous phases, the packaging is composed of 85% recycled glass and labels produced using natural inks. And this is where the seeming contrast between old and new returns, where the new (the container) encloses the old (the contents), which is in turn old itself (traditional) precisely because it is new (clean and fair). Mirafiore wines: Pure expression of seeming contrasts.

The center of the production of the world’s most exclusive and age-worthy red wines made from Nebbiolo, the Barolo region includes five core townships: La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Serralunga d’Alba, Castiglione Falletto and the Barolo village itself, as well as a few outlying villages. The landscape of Barolo, characterized by prominent and castle-topped hills, is full of history and romance centered on the Nebbiolo grape. Its wines, with the signature “tar and roses” aromas, have a deceptively light garnet color but full presence on the palate and plenty of tannins and acidity. In a well-made Barolo, one can expect to find complexity and good evolution with notes of, for example, strawberry, cherry, plum, leather, truffle, anise, fresh and dried herbs, tobacco and violets.

There are two predominant soil types here, which distinguish Barolo from the lesser surrounding areas. Compact and fertile Tortonian sandy marls define the vineyards farthest west and at higher elevations. Typically the Barolo wines coming from this side, from La Morra and Barolo, can be approachable relatively early on in their evolution and represent the “feminine” side of Barolo, often closer in style to Barbaresco with elegant perfume and fresh fruit.

On the eastern side of the region, Helvetian soils of compressed sandstone and chalks are less fertile, producing wines with intense body, power and structured tannins. This more “masculine” style comes from Monforte d’Alba and Serralunga d’Alba. The township of Castiglione Falletto covers a spine with both soils types.

The best Barolo wines need 10-15 years before they are ready to drink, and can further age for several decades.

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area, as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Somm Secret—If you’re new to Nebbiolo, start with a charming, wallet-friendly, early-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba.
