Tasting Note:

The smoothness, warmth and glycerol on show here are all classic hallmarks of the 2011 vintage. Whilst the fruit is rich and ripe, the gripping tannins provide a perfect counterbalance. Silky, sweet spice and fruit liquor flavours, notes of plum liqueur and bramble. Bold, hedonistic Barolo. This used to be blended with Rocche dell Annunziata but as of 2010 will be bottled up separately in magnums and released a year later than the other Cru Barolos. From a small hill in the Barolo commune that produces, powerful classically-styled Barolos. Like the Sarmassa the wine is aged slightly differently to the other crus, for 24 months in 30% new oak barriques rather than in a mixture of barriques and 20hl wooden vats.
