“This high-toned, silky and food friendly Barolo is brimming with fresh rose petals, raspberry, and tobacco, leading to a bright and spicy and earthy palate that’s balanced with richer notes of mocha and savory herbs.  Slightly tight now, but will be gorgeous in 3-5 years (with a decant) or up to 20 years.  A gorgeous representation of one of the region’s best vintages.” - California Wine Advisors

“A more modern feel to the nose here with a layer of toasty oak sitting across abundant spiced red-cherry aromas. The palate has a handy array of fine, succulent tannins that carry a long thread of rich, fresh red-plum and cherry flavor. Juicy and intense Barolo. Try from 2022. Drink now.” - James Suckling

VINTAGE NOTES
“The full capability of the nebbiolo grape’s expressive nature is alive in Barolo 2015 and it is a vintage to really celebrate. In general, the wines are exuberantly fragrant and show fresh clear fruit on the nose with abundant aromatic complexity. Structurally they are rich in ripe, fine and powerful tannins. They are toned, muscular and athletic, coupled with freshness, a keen sense of focus, great length, and an astute balance.   

These wines also have the great fortune of offering instant appeal as well as more in-depth attraction, which is the hallmark of a truly great vintage. These wines will satisfy both the experienced palate and educated connoisseur. They are also very expressive and show strong typicity by communes and also single vineyards. But if there was one attribute to single out, it is the way in which these wines combine power with elegance. They are thrilling to taste.” - James Suckling
