    From vineyards planted between 1959 and 2008, this is matured in 5,000-litre oak barrels and is darkly-hued, and immediatly smooth and silky aromatically. Black cherry is the overriding aroma, but with a polished leather sheen and little note of dried herbs. In the mouth there’s that lovely juxtaposition between tartness and sweetness, the cherries, lip-tingling acidity and hint of briar and herbs adding lots of interest.

    From younger vines (planted in 2011) in the same Vigna Rionda vineyard that supplies the top Vigna Rionda Barolo, this is aged in large barrels of oak from the Fontainebleau forest for 12 months. Fine, pale colour, and a lovely delicate strawberry and raspberry note to the herbs and forest floor spices on the nose. Some floral top notes just developing. In the mouth it is structured, cool and correct: fairly tightly wound at this youthful stage, the surge of acdity through the mid-palate to join the fruit, and the taut, very fine tannins, giving lots of tension and linear focus. The spices, the hints of game and truffle, are just starting to develop, but it remains cool and elegantly concentrated and intense into the finish. Needs time.

    A vibrant red, with blackberry and black currant flavors underlined by vivid acidity. Leaf, tobacco and graphite notes edge in as this unwinds on the finish.” Bruce Sanderson

    “Cherry and earth flavors mingle in this red, which starts out plump, turning slightly austere on the finish. Light tannins finish up. Best from 2013 through 2017. “Bruce Sanderson
