Famous Italian red from prestigious estate; single vineyard (Castellero).
Vert De Vin: "93-94 - The nose is fruity, racy and offers a finesse of the grain and intensity. It reveals notes of red berries, small notes of local copse associated with touches of dry flowers, nutmeg and very fine hints of liquorice stick. The palate is fruity, fresh, mineral and offers a good definition, gourmandize and a fine acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy wild red berries, crunchy blackberry, small notes of violet associated with a hint of iris, crunchy blackberry, small notes of violet associated with a hint of iris, dry rose as well as discreet hints of sense of the place."
July, 2021 - drinking beautifully. 15 mins in the decanter and lots of glass swirling. Opening up as we sip. Stunning wine.
Wine Enthusiast's Kerin O’Keefe says "New leather, truffle and ripe berry aromas mingle with scents of dark spice. On the full-bodied palate, youthfully assertive fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity support Marasca cherry, black raspberry, star anise and menthol."
A note from the winery: "The vinification style, as for all our wines, is that we use a light hand that is more to accompany the grapes until the bottle. We believe that a wine especially from a single variety, is unique and unrepeatable we think of our winemaking like how a child is accompanied in its growth without force, to encourage their unique personality to come forth. The above grapes are vinified separately only in vintages that are of good quality. In contrast, over the years less fortunate, we will plan to blend our Nebbiolo grapes from other subareas to produce a Barolo without the mention of vineyard."
