Winemaker Notes

Garnet red in color, this wine -- made from grapes from different subzones in Serralunga -- offers a broad and variable spectrum of perfumes, ranging from spicy notes to those of a sweeter, floral and fruity nature. On the palate, this Barolo displays a variety of sensations. It is full-bodied, classic and well-structured.

Achieves its best expression when served with red meats, particularly game, and with dishes dressed with truffle. Also excellent with fresh egg pasta and meat sauce, and with risotto, as well as medium-mature cow's milk and goat's milk cheeses.

93 Points - Wine Spectator

Plum, earth, hay, leather, licorice, tar and iron flavors are the hallmarks of this powerful red. Offers a dense matrix of tannins, but the finish is long and finds equilibrium in the end. Best from 2024 through 2043.

91 Points - James Suckling

Impressive vibrant strawberries. A lighter fruited style with poached cherries and vanilla. Attractive fragrances, too. The palate has a mellow, medium-bodied feel, and the tannins are nicely shaped. Try from 2020.

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast

This fragrant red offers delicate, enticing scents of wild berry, blue flower and a whiff of camphor. On the vibrant, focused palate, refined tannins and bright acidity frame juicy red cherry, raspberry and white pepper. It’s elegant—almost ethereal—and already approachable. Drink through now–2024.

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2014 Barolo is an accessible, mid-weight wine with varietal aromas of wild berry, smoke, forest floor and grilled herb. This wine washes over the palate with silky intensity and fine tannins that already show a very good level of integration. I would wait a few more years to enjoy this bottle, but ultimately this wine can be consumed in the near or medium term. It already shows very nice balance at this young age. Bottle production is 50,000 units strong.

90 Points - Wine & Spirits

Taut tannins and vibrant acidity frame this wine’s red-cherry flavors, giving the wine a snappy texture that’s further enlivened by notes of orange zest. The flavors take on undertones of tobacco with exposure to air, balancing the high-toned fruit and mouthwatering acidity.
