    Winemaker's Notes:

    Crimson with garnet hues in color, the bouquet is extremely complex; in youth, it shows delicate fruity notes like raspberry and strawberry, as well as mint; in time, the nose evolves and acquires spicy nuances as well as hints of tobacco, goudron and roses confirmed on the full, luscious, velvet-textured palate. A modern-style Barolo whose ideal balance of components and soft, approachable dimension are particularly suited to the international market and the restaurant trade.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is elegant and light in weight, exhibiting rose, strawberry and anise aromas and flavors. Its structure is right in step, leaving a harmonious impression. Expands on the finish, with spice and licorice accents. Best from 2014 through 2028.

    Cascina Bongiovanni’s 2007 Barolo is a beautiful, open wine bursting with the radiant personality of the vintage. Soft, supple and harmonious through to the finish, the Barolo caresses the palate with layers of floral, spiced fruit. Proprietor Davide Mozzone ages his straight Barolo in used oak. For the last few years, the estate’s straight Barolo has been one of the finest under-the-radar wines in Piedmont, as it is again in 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.

    The Wine Advocate

    Good bright red. Musky aromas of redcurrant, red cherry, strawberry, leather and flowers. Sweet, floral and vinous, with attractive integrated acidity giving cut and lift to the middle palate. Not a particularly opulent style of 2007 but very easy to drink. Finishes with firm but ripe tannins and excellent length.
