The idea of combining different sensations to create a good balance is the basis of the original concept of Barolo; the more traditional producers have always tried to avoid prioritising the single expression of the vineyard in lieu of the right balance in the glass. And so it is in our classic Barolo, two souls of the appellation coexisting: the more gentle one, whose area is defined by the Tortonian soils of La Morra and Barolo, of which Brunate is an example, and the more austere and masculine one, coming from slopes with typical Helvetian soil, such as those at the base of Gabutti in Serralunga. It's a stylistic choice, that of trying to interpret the taste of the appellation's namesake, which gives us a rich and virile wine, able to be enjoyed young or after its evolution, for the passionate.

The organic 2018 Barolo falls in line with vintage expectations with a very smooth and silky personality that caresses the palate. Dark rose, cherry and licorice cede to a polished, mid-weight palate.

A round red, boasting plum, cherry, mint, iron and tar flavors. The tannins are firm but meld nicely already at this young stage, leaving room for an aftertaste of fruit, savory, earth and mineral notes on the finish. Best from 2024 through 2040. 1,736 cases imported.

The 2018 Barolo is very pretty and light on its feet. Sweet floral and spice accents lend lovely aromatic presence. In keeping with the style of the year, this is an especially ethereal, weightless wine.

Aromas of French oak, coconut and culinary spice carry over to the linear palate along with unripe cherry and bright acidity. It's rather light on its feet, with dusty tannins that leave an astringent, drying finish. Drink 2023-2028.
