The Monvigliero hillside was already highly rated one hundred years ago by all Barolo producers.
A wine with a beautiful colour of garnet red, with inviting ruby red reflections. Pervasive and lingering ‘church windows’ and tears accentuate its perfect clarity.
A bouquet that is elegant, intense, pervasive and lingering. Hints of wilted rose, autumn leaves, sweet tobacco and spices are clearly perceivable.
On the palate, it reveals a great structure, together with pleasing sensations of intense heat. A well orchestrated savoury flavour provides freshness, while sweetish tannins confer a note of interest. Its taste spectrum is enhanced by slight hints of chocolate, ripe fruit and spices. A wine of great balance, with the power to excite and satisfy the most discerning consumer.
