TASTING NOTES

Ephemeral, fragile and delicate, the wine shows a softer caliber of fruit, with wild berry, cassis, smoke, tar and powdered licorice. There are earthy notes at the back with truffle essence and forest floor. This vintage offers a heightened level of complexity and nuance. This wine is a pure expression of the Rosé clone of Nebbiolo that is known for its lighter color and delicate aromas.

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate.

A tight, firm Barolo with dried-mushroom, floral and dark-berry aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and chewy with a linear flow of tannins and acidity through the center, yet it remains focused and transparent with beautiful character.

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Seamless in the glass, with stunning balance and all of the pedigree of this year. Medium in body and gracious, it shows elegant notes of rose petal, mint, white pepper, sweet tobacco and dried flowers. Sweet red stone fruit marry with a classic sense of austerity. All of the elements here come together in this stunning, gloriously beautiful Barolo from Cogno. Deeply expressive and intense, it is ethereal, lifted and with pure class.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous.

Beguiling aromas of pressed rose, perfumed berry, dark spice and new leather mingle together on this fragrant, enticing red. Showing extraordinary finesse, the chiseled delicious palate delivers juicy raspberry, tart red cherry, cinnamon, star anise and chopped mint. A smoky mineral note graces the finish while taut lithe tannins and bright acidity provide elegant support.

Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast.
