The wine shows layered aromas of mint, fennel, plum and spices before rich red currant flavors, with rose petal and more mint notes. On the palate the acidity is balanced and the tannins are silky, leading to a long finish. Food Pairing: This wine is a superlative pairing for beef roasts,lamb, game and hard cheeses.

"Highly Recommended". Fresh, elegant and detailed, this red offers cherry, strawberry, floral, licorice, tar and tobacco aromas and flavors. It firms up on the long finish, remaining fresh and complex. Best from 2018 through 2033.

The 2010 Barolo Tortoniano is aged in large oak cask for two years and shows an impressive level of fruit boldness and extraction. Although the style is plush and -modern- on the Barolo continuum, Tortoniano is a seamless expression with supple tannins and fresh acidity that meld into one beautiful whole. Drink: 2016-2025.

Aromas suggest subtle oak, vanilla and espresso with whiffs of leather and balsam. The bright palate offers candied red cherry accented with white pepper, nutmeg, clove, coffee bean and grilled sage alongside bracing tannins. Drink 2018-2038.
