Critical acclaim

93 points Wine Enthusiast

*Editors' Choice* Enticing aromas of wild berry, pine forest, aromatic herbs, iris and a hint of leather emerge on this full-bodied red. The bold, chewy palate delivers crunchy red berry, anise white pepper, clove, and sage alongside youthfully assertive tannins and bright acidity. The ripe fruit seamlessly supports the hefty alcohol level. (11/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

A mix of eucalyptus, cherry, leafy and tar aromas and flavors are allied to a moderately firm structure in this balanced red. The finish is long and walks the line between fresh cherry, spice and earth notes. Best from 2018 through 2032. (4/2016)

Jancis Robinson

Barolo. Concentrated ruby with broad orange-tinged rim. Vigorous resin and cherry nose. Sweet strawberry fruit on the palate with waves of grainy tannins. Tangy acidity turns up on the finish. Long and still a little unsettled. (6/2015)

Food Pairing: Roast Goose, Braised Beef in Barolo, Truffle Risotto
