Reviews & Scores

Deep ruby. Classic aromas of redcurrant, licorice and menthol, with a slightly gamey edge. Dense and juicy, with black fruit flavors lifted by violet and complicated by peppery spices and herbs. Produced from five hectares of 40-year-old vines, this cabernet franc finishes on an earthy note.
88 Points, Joel Payne

Solid, with a racy core of damson plum and bitter cherry fruit backed by lively tobacco leaf and olive notes. The fresh finish lets a savory edge chime in, leaving a mouthwatering echo.
89 Points, Wine Spectator

TASTING NOTES

Dried cherries, raspberries, tobacco and crushed flowers rise effortlessly from the glass. Delicate berry-infusions are contained within a tightly packed tannic structure. But the texture is beautifully silken. Freshness and verve are the hallmarks of this appealing vintage and this wonderful Barolo has it in spades.

TASTING NOTES

Intense aromas of blackberries and black cherries with a note of chocolate and spice. Velvety smooth on the palate with rich black fruit flavours, some notes of coffee and a touch of black pepper. Good chewy tannins to balance and lingering black fruit flavours on the finish.
