Tasting Note

An intense bouquet with hints of ripe fruit and rose petals. Persistent in taste, thanks to its fine and enveloping tannins that give an elegant pleasantness to this wine.

James Suckling Tasting Note

A more savory edge to the nose with tar and walnuts across dried roses and red berries. The palate delivers a succulent, focused and flavorful, red-cherry core with smooth tannins framing it neatly. Drink or hold. 92 Points, January 2019

Wine Advocate Tasting Note

The 2015 Barolo is a slightly more subdued and downplayed expression of Nebbiolo from a vintage that generally unleashes the explosive and exuberant side of the grape. In Mauro Molino’s version, the fruit is contained and packaged in neat little aromatic compartments, starting first with wild berry and moving successively to rose, spice, leather, dark licorice, tar and cigar. You’d do well to highlight those subtleties by serving it with some delicate crackers and goose liver pâté. Production is ample with 49,000 bottles made. 92 Points. Monica Larner, June 2019

Jancis Robinson.com Tasting Note

Just mid ruby with orange tinges. Ripe, seductive cherry with top notes of spice and a hint of iron and earth. Open-knit, soft fruit with ripe, grainy tannins and just a bit of zippy acidity on the finish. Long, supple, forthcoming and approachable and with plenty of style. I keep thinking of Christmas goose but without a lot of trimmings. Drink 2019-2024- 16 Points, Walter Speller. November 2018

Food Pairing

Perfect partner to Italian food, ragú with pasta, wild mushroom risotto,  truffles.
