AROMA Nice expressive nose with balsamic notes and sweet spices, whose complexity is then ensured by delicate aromas of blackberries and wild strawberries, mint and violet. PALATE The entrance on the palate is striking, solid and compact, followed by a soft and refined structure that transforms towards a more slender and discreet style in the finish, where refined and moderately astringent tannins meet. Fermented in steel and concrete contenitors under strict temperature control (29°C-31°C), post-fermentation maceration, racked after 22/25 days, decanted, and by maintaining the right temperature malolactic process is induced. Several months of maturation in barrels on oak, thereafter a long period in bottle to complete the aging.

Our notes

96 Points - Huon Hooke - The Real Review

Medium full red with tawny and brick-red tints; the bouquet is quite complex in its savoury dried-herb and polished timber way. The wine is medium-full bodied and has a touch of richness with abundant supple, drying, powdery tannins in good harmony with the rest of the wine's components. Good drive and persistence of palate. A wine of serious concentration. It finishes right out and has a satisfying farewell, a finish that lingers long and reverberates for quite a while.

94+ Points - Gary Walsh - The Wine Front

I tasted 14×2018 Barolo on Friday, and I’d say this was probably my favourite, or in the top few. Importer: Red + White

Cherry, red berries, rose and mint. Medium-bodied, succulent and charming, tannin is gentle but with an ironstone quality (if that makes sense), some orange peel in with bright red fruit, and again ferrous and precise on a finish of excellent length. Light, frisky, but such good bone structure. Excellent. A bit of a Burgundy feel to it, if you don’t mind.

Producers notes

Founded by Luigi Einaudi, during his time as Governor of Banca d’Italia and President of Italy after the second world war, it is said he never missed a harvest! His son Roberto succeeded him, but it was Roberto’s daughter Paola, on her return from Milano to Dogliani at the end of the 1980s, who with tenacity, enthusiasm and significant investment, re-launched this historic brand and went about improving wine quality.

Today it is her son, fourth generation Matteo Sardagna, who is at the helm. Long sojourns in the Langhe as a child with his grandfather and mother left Matteo with a deeply-rooted passion for the family’s values and customs. Today the winery is equipped with unique cement egg-like fermenting tanks, and botti of varying sizes and age so that Matteo and his team can produce wines which reflect their terroir, and the traditional style of the region and the estate.
