"Aromas of chalk, dusty soil and sliced strawberries and just a hint of orange. Full-bodied with fine tannins and a chewy finish that shows polish and composure. Drink in 2022."
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate
Exuberant, dark and generous, the 2015 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba reflects the characteristics of this warm vintage, further reinforced by the territory-specific power you get from this township. This wine is all about muscle and power, but the tannins are softly integrated and there are no hard edges here. Indeed, the wine is relatively accessible and straight-shooting from start to finish. This wine sees fruit sourced from five vineyard sites within Serralunga d'Alba: Parafada, Gabutti, San Bernardo, Serra and Ornato.
Exotic spice, pipe tobacco, blue flower and camphor aromas shape the nose. On the full-bodied palate, notes of licorice and clove accent a core of dried cherry set against a backbone of firm, refined tannins. Drink 2022–2030. KERIN O’KEEFE
