Description

The Barolo is distinctively elegant and graceful. Both its bouquet and taste are well-balanced and delicate.

94 Points 
Wine Enthusiast - *Cellar Selection* This elegant, full-bodied wine opens with delicate scents of rose, iris and wild berry. The palate is juicy and delicious, offering ripe black cherry, crushed raspberry, grilled herb and tobacco alongside a backbone of firm, velvety tannins. Drink 2020–2028. 

90 Points Wine & Spirits - Fruit for this bottling comes from six different vineyards in the Verduno commune, giving a wine with delicate floral spice and a soft strawberry ripeness. Fine tannins allow the fruit to express its fleshy red flavors, offering immediate pleasure alongside a chicken roasted with garlic and rosemary.

90 Points 
Wine Spectator - This is elegant and open, with refined tannins supporting cherry, floral, strawberry and spice flavors. Stays juicy, building to a long finish laced with accents of tobacco and mineral. Best from 2018 through 2030.
