Garnet red, it opens up with aromas of red fruits followed by licorice, mint, and flowers. Fresh with soft and balanced tannins.
Pair with roast meat, game, or aged cheese.
Red cherries and berries on the nose with hints of truffley mushroom and aromatic bark. Full-to medium-bodied with fine, lightly firm and spice-coated tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Best from 2023.

From Castelletto in Monforte, this Barolo is produced with a selection of 25-30-year-old vines, younger than those used for the estate's La Villa bottling. A restrained character prevails on the nose, although offering up tar, dried cherry, and rhubarb flavoured boiled sweets. With time, pomegranate and violet emerge in the glass, remaining intense on the palate and through to the finish. Tight and firm with dusty, assertive tannins and bracing acidity, the wine is balanced and full bodied, with an austere finish.
