This vintage has extraordinary elegance, complexity and character. Aroma: Silky and intense bouquet. Flavor: Full body, great structure, right tannins, incredible ageing potential, precise and classic Nebbiolo style. The wine has sweet and very elegant tannins. It still needs one year in oak for the best maturation.

Camphor, cedar, mature berry and pipe tobacco aromas are front and center. The full-bodied, linear palate shows strawberry compote, wild cherry, licorice and white pepper framed in taut, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2020-2027.

The 2015 Barolo is a beautifully balanced and tight expression of Nebbiolo that hits all the right spots on the palate, from the side of the mouth where you taste the acidity to the back where you get a sense of the wine's structure and integrated tannins. That freshness could pair well with a steak in pepper cream sauce. Long skin maceration times are followed by oak aging, partially in botti with a smaller part in barrique. Some 80,000 bottles were made.

A classic 2015 with its core of sweet fruit and already hard to resist personality, the 2015 Barolo is more medium-bodied and elegant on the palate, with silky tannins and a rocking bouquet of candied violets, raspberries, rose petals, and licorice. It’s not a blockbuster, but it shines for its balanced, layered, charming style and just has wonderful fruit.

A lean, tightly wound style, displaying light cherry, licorice, tobacco and mineral flavors. A streak of iron builds as this plays out on the austere finish. Best from 2022 through 2036. 5,800 cases made, 2,500 cases imported.
