The flavors are dark, powerful and intense throughout. Beams of searing tannin and vibrant, pointed acidity wrap around the virile, imposing finish. Readers will have to be patient with the 2013, as it is likely to be slow to mature in bottle. Even so, the purity of the flavors and textures is compelling.

This is all about fruit defined by a purity and clarity that I really appreciate. Full body, a deep, and dense palate and a long and flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to soften, but what a beauty already. Best... This is all about fruit defined by a purity and clarity that I really appreciate.

The bouquet is immediately open and articulate. Fruit is sourced from six vineyards spread across three townships: Barolo (Terlo and Liste), Monforte d'Alba (Ravera and Mosconi) and Serralunga d'Alba (Gabutti and Baudana). Each one, averaging only half a hectare in size, adds a little piece of the puzzle. In the future, the idea is to increase the percentage of Mosconi fruit to bring total bottle production from 4,000 to around 6,000. The wine is ample and generous in terms of its aromatic intensity with bold fruit, spice and balsam herb. The finish is dry and marked by distant mineral flavors. - Monica Larner

Broad and spicy, offering cherry, leather, earth and tobacco notes wrapped in sweet spices. Muscular tannins move in on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2042. — B.S.
