Winemaker Notes: The color is garnet-red with ruby highlights that take on a slightly orange tone over time. It has a clear-cut, intense nose with overtones of vanilla, spices, withered roses and underbrush. The taste is dry, but soft, full-bodied, velvety and well balanced, and is very long-lasting. Ideal with big red meat dishes and medium or mature cheeses, it can also make for pleasant after-dinner company.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


James Suckling - "Very pretty ripe cherries and strawberries with light toffee undertones…full-bodied, but tight and focused. Chewy tannins… Better after 2022."


Wine Enthusiast - Best of Year 2020 - "Aromas of black-skinned berry and baking spice follow through to the focused, savory palate along with licorice and orange zest. It's linear and structured, with taut, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2024–2031."


Wine Spectator - "This red is aromatic, offering red berry, tobacco, iron and eucalyptus notes before quickly firming up. It's elegant, and will need two to three years of cellaring to absorb its dense, dry tannins. Best from 2023 through 2040. 17,000 cases made, 5,100 cases imported."


Vinous - "The 2016 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba is a very pretty, refined wine. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit, spice and licorice give the 2016 lovely aromatic presence. This is an unusually gracious Serralunga Barolo, although there is plenty of tannic grip underpinning it all."
