In 2018 the estate didn’t make its cru-specific bottlings so the best grapes are in this straight Barolo. And it shows. It opens with heady scents of eucalyptus, pine forest, hay, new leather and lilac. Extremely elegant, the savory, vibrant palate exhibits red cherry, juniper berry and star anise set against taut, refined tannins and bright acidity. *Editors’ Choice* 96 POINTS, WINE ENTHUSIAST

With the owners having decided against producing any of their single-vineyard wines, this Barolo benefits from being a blend of top-class vineyards such as Vignarionda, Margheria, Parafada and Parussi in Castiglione Falletto. Lustrous mid ruby. Displays the intense fragrance so typical of the 2018 vintage and with plenty of concentration underneath. Supple fruit layered with crunchy tannins and ripe, appetising acidity. Lots of stuffing and grip. JANCIS ROBINSON
