TASTING NOTES:

Violet, rose, ripe berry and minty aromas mingle with earthy whiffs of truffle, leather and game. The delicious, juicy palate doles out fleshy Marasca cherry, crushed black raspberry, licorice and tobacco framed in chewy, fine-grained tannins.
 - Wine Enthusiast, 94 pts

This is a blend of Nebbiolo with about half of the fruit sourced in the Cerequio vineyard and the rest coming from other parcels, including some plantings in the Novello township. The Cerequio fruit itself comes from 30-year-old vines. This vintage shows a touch of extra sweetness and richness with blackberry, summer cherry and spice. The style achieved in the 2015 Barolo Tortoniano is an immediate and accessible one. This is a great choice for lovers of Italian wine who are only beginning to experiment with the great wines of Piedmont.
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 92 pts

Some more savory aromas lead the nose here with game, leather and crushed rose petals, as well as fresh, woody notes and cherries. The palate has a swathe of brisk acidity, driving fresh red fruit and a strong thread of fine, juicy tannins. Assertive, long finish.
