WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

 

The wine shows layered aromas of rose petals, juniper berries and fine spices. On the palate the acidity is balanced, and the tannins are silky, leading to a long finish.

This wine is a superlative pairing for fettuccine with porcini, braised red meats, and well-matured cheeses.

TASTING NOTES:

Earthy and delicious, this opens with aromas of ripe dark-skinned berry, new leather, truffle and crushed botanical herb. The structured, expressive palate delivers crushed black cherry, mature raspberry, tobacco and the barest whiff of game alongside tightly knit, velvety tannins. It's well balanced, with fresh acidity. Drink 2024–2031.
- Wine Enthusiast, 95 pts.
Mint and eucalyptus add a savory side to the cherry, raspberry and floral flavors in this elegant red. It's vibrant and approachable now for its fresh fruit, yet will improve with age. Fine balance and length on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2040.
- Wine Spectator, 93 pts.
The 2016 Barolo Tortoniano is an accessible and forthcoming wine that gives you the complexity and nuance of the Nebbiolo grape with a fruit-forward and food-friendly personality. There is a dry and astringent quality to the tannins that might need to smooth itself out with a few more years of cellar aging. Otherwise, the wine would pair with ravioli stuffed with minced meat and topped with extra cheese.
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Ripe and generous with currants, plums and spice, as well as chocolate character. It’s full-bodied with round tannins and a firm, racy finish.
- James Suckling, 93 pts.
