Natalie's Score: 94/100
Incredible grace, finesse and length on this Barolo! Almost pinot noir-like in elegance but with more concentration and complexity. Tanned leather, violets and dried cherry. Made from the Nebbiolo grape. Pair with truffle dishes.
Barolo food pairings: roasts, game.

Reviews and Ratings
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Deep, rich aromas of dried cherries, earth, old leather, and more. Smooth, silky mouth-feel with a taste of dried cherries and rounded tannins.
I'm sure this wine would be good with something Italian if it lasts long enough once open.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
An elegant Barolo from Piedmont, in northern Italy, made from the Nebbiolo varietal. Silky smooth, with finely woven aromas and flavours of dried cherries, herbs and bitter almonds, and lovely floral nuances opening on the lingering finish. Will age for up to 15 years.
Tasted August 2016
|Soil type: Quite loose marl formed by clear purposes and rather dry.|
From a geological point of view it belongs to the formation of the Tortonian.
Processing: Crushing and-stemming, long maceration with submerged cap 4-6 Weeks (Depending on the year)
Vinification: In stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures
Maturing Process: 6 months in stainless steel tanks
Aging: 24 months in barrels of Slavonian oak oversize.
To view offers a very nice color robe, never too busy, but very stable in time. The bouquet is rich, full and very persistent. Reminiscent of fresh fruit, berries in particular, sweet spicy sensations, hay mountain and forest. Very good structure; tannins and acids are present in a very nice balance of their great wines with long aging potential. It 'a wine worthy of the reputation it has always enjoyed.
