Deep ruby color with a mouthwatering bouquet of red cherry, flowers, chalk, and mint add aromatic intensity and brightness of great vintage wine.
On the Palate it opens with flavors of dark berry fruits, earthy spice, black currants balanced by the superior structure of lengthy tannins, good acidity brisk minerality and a persistent finish, which reflect the typical characteristics of the appellation of Monforte.

Sweet, fresh leather, vanilla and dried red-cherry aromas with nuances of tar and wild mountain herbs. The palate has a brisk,
succulent feel with sweeping, sheet-like tannins wrapping the long finish. Drink this from 2022.
The 2015 Barolo shows classic lines and a beautiful disposition that prizes bright primary fruit and Nebbiolo complexity, especially at this early stage in the wine's evolutionary trajectory. The wine is soft and fruit forward with an immediate drinking style that adds a pretty and accessible element to this straight-shooting Barolo. Here's one for that rib eye you've been waiting for. Some 10,000 bottles were produced."

Aromas of pressed rose, menthol, ripe berry and pine forest shape the nose. The linear, full-bodied palate has nice intensity, offering cranberry, sour cherry, licorice and cinnamon accompanied by firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. (KO) (12/2019)92 points James Suckling
