Winemaker Notes

The color is garnet-red with ruby highlights that take on a slightly orange tone over time. It has a clear-cut, intense nose with overtones of vanilla, spices, withered roses and underbrush. The taste is dry, but soft, full-bodied, velvety and well balanced,and is very long-lasting. Ideal with big red meat dishes and medium or mature cheeses, it can also make for pleasant after-dinner company.

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Woodland berry, crushed mint and pressed rose aromas lift out of the glass. Firmly structured but also boasting finesse, the focused palate presents red cherry, raspberry, clove and a hint of chopped herb framed in taut, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2025–2043.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2013 Barolo Serralunga d'Alba is a wine of heft and power. This is a site-specific expression that reflects the darker colors, aromatic intensity and firmer tannic structure that can be achieved specifically in this township. The wine impresses for its focus and finesse. A greater percentage of barrique is used because the fruit had the dense fiber and broad shoulders to support that extra oak. Serralunga d'Alba became its own Barolo sub zone in 1988. Like the many vintages made since then, this wine makes a bold statement on the unique qualities that define this celebrated Barolo sub zone.

92 Points - James Suckling

Very pretty aromas and flavors of strawberry, lemon and stones. Some ash too. Full body, linear and tannic yet racy and beautiful. Drink in 2019.

90 Points - Wine Spectator

Cherry, strawberry and mineral flavors are the hallmarks of this elegant red, whose dense tannins lend support. Winds down with tobacco and chalk notes. Best from 2023 through 2038.
