Wine SpectatorSweet cherry, raspberry, leather and balsamic flavors form the core of this red. Backed by a vibrant structure, with dusty tannins lining the gums on the long finish. Elegant. Best from 2016 through 2030. 1,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Barolo shows remarkable harmony and balance. Fruit is sourced from La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d'Alba and this makes for a beautiful combination of power and elegance. Wild berry, black fruit, tar, garden herb and spice characterize the bouquet. In the mouth, the wine displays fine tannins and a perfectly polished feel.
