From Wine Enthusiast European 'Winery of the Year' comes this perfectly aged Barolo. Smoky, floral, gunsmoke and leather aromas. Intense, powerful, driving, but has softened now, and is very pleasing on the palate. Loaded with character, has an attractive rustic note to it. Delicious. Drinking window: 2010 - 2028.

Subliminal or not, it does smell of roses, along with vanilla oak, spice, cherry and liquorice. It’s a smooth and silky compote of fruit and oak with plenty of length, but not the distinguished level that the La Villa attains. It’s more forward and plump, almost cuddly for a Barolo and very easy to sink your teeth into – a fleshy pleasure style rather than a cerebral one, if you’ll indulge me for a moment.
