The wine shows layered aromas of rose petals, juniper berries and fine spices. On the palate the acidity is balanced and the tannins are silky, leading to a long finish. Tortoniano is named for the tortonian-era soils in which the vines are planted, which contain a high percentage of magnesium and manganese. Grape clusters are thinned and harvested up to 15 days later than usual so that the fruit attains higher concentration. Temperatures are strictly controlled during vinification and the wine is aged for two years in large oak casks and one year in bottle before release.

Layers of pine, balsamic, kirsch, and menthol emerge from the 2019 Barolo Tortoniano, balanced nicely with the floral perfume of pressed roses. A medium-bodied and well-structured red, it has ripe tannins, a fresh spine of acidity, and lingering notes of leather and fresh soil. It is charming now, but it certainly has the structure to drink well over the next 8-10 years.

Light, rose color, silky smooth with a hint of tobacco, basil and mint.

90 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2018 Barolo Tortoniano is very nicely done. Gentle touches of spice, crushed flowers, mocha, orange peel and red berry fruit give this aromatic, open-knit Barolo plenty of charm. Best of all, the 2018 will drink well with minimal cellaring" 09/22
