Good full red. High-pitched perfume of blackcurrant and rose petal. Then wonderfully sweet and deep with superb inner-mouth energy and lift to its dark berry and floral flavors. Wonderfully elegant and suave Barolo... Good full red. High-pitched perfume of blackcurrant and rose petal. Then wonderfully sweet and deep with superb inner-mouth energy and lift to its dark berry and floral flavors. Wonderfully elegant and suave Barolo with a light touch. Finishes with very firm but high-quality tannins and outstanding length and lift. The wine's acidity of around 6 grams hides its 14.5% alcohol

Bursting with cherry raspberry and licorice aromas and flavors this pretty red is not without density with dusty tannins and bright acidity keeping it focused. Offers fine balance and length with a licorice and spice... Bursting with cherry raspberry and licorice aromas and flavors this pretty red is not without density with dusty tannins and bright acidity keeping it focused. Offers fine balance and length with a licorice and spice aftertaste. Best from 2014 through 2027.-B.S.

Layers of dark red fruit flowers spices and minerals emerge as the wine opens up in the glass. The 2008 possesses lovely mid-palate pliancy and juiciness along with beautifully integrated tannins and exceptional polish. Floral notes add lift and brightness. I particularly like its energy. This is an especially open vintage for the Vigna del Gris. I don't see the 2008 making old bones but it will be delicious over the next 10-12 years give or take. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. -Antonio Galloni

Interesting aromas of dried flowers with some stems and dark fruits. Full-bodied with semi-chewy tannins and a medium finish. A little tight now but solid. Better after 2014.
