This fruity Serralunga Barolo offers tons of immediacy in the open-knit style that is typical of parts of this Serralunga vineyard. Silky, impeccably balanced tannins add to the wine's considerable allure. The 2017 is not super complex, but it is racy and dangerously delicious. -- Antonio Galloni

Medium-to full-bodied with fine, firm tannins. Give this plenty of time to even out. Best after 2023.

As you might expect of this hot vintage, the wine is robust and powerful, with a generous bouquet that also embraces spice, dark tar and campfire ash. This vintage shows broad and horizontal characteristics and a little less depth as a result. The Rapet vineyard is located in Serralunga d'Alba although it is not an official MGA designation. Note that all of the wines in this flight from Ca' Rome' officially clock in at a mighty alcohol content up to 15.5%. About 4,500 bottles were released.- ML
