Description

I know I say it a lot, but the style of Barolo Borgogno make, is exactly my thing. All Barolo here, from five crus – Cannubi, Cannubi San Lorenzo, Fossati, Liste, San Pietro delle Viole – just like Nonno used to make. Red fruits, star anise, roses, aromatic herbs. It’s medium-bodied, kind of pretty, but appropriately firm. Lovely tussle between quiet succulence of fruit and tannin, ideal freshness, and a long finish with just a little blood orange coming through. So classic. Love this. 95 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

Silky and smooth, this poised red opens with aromas of woodland berry, forest floor and camphor. It's savory and polished, offering flavors of juicy black cherry and licorice with a hint of hazelnut before finishing on a note of blood orange. Lithe tannins and fresh acidity keep it balanced. It's already accessible, but will also age well for several years. Drink through 2026. 93 points, Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast
