    Winemaker's Notes:

    Barolo "Meriame" is an intense red color with light auburn reflections. It combines the elegance of violet perfume and roses with the power of licorice and leather... the typical scent of a great Barolo.

    The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine come from 60 year old vines situated on the south- and southeast-facing slope of a hill near the village of Serralunga, at about 250 to 300 meters, in the heart of the Barolo-producing region. The soil is a mixture of clay and calcerous limestone, which is not fertile, but perfect for the Nebbiolo grape, and the vineyards are protected from wild variations of temperature and weather by the amphitheater "bowllike" shape of the terrain. After hand-picking, the free-run juices are stocked in vertical stainless steel vats. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures with maceration on skins taking place over approximately 14 days. The wine is then matured in large French oak barrels.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A ripe style, with density and power supporting its cherry, licorice and iron aromas and flavors. This feels like a solid, muscular Barolo from a warm vintage. The finish is long and fresh. Best from 2014 through 2034. 660 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2007 Barolo Meriame shows more Serralunga village character than the regular bottling. The clarity and precision are both admirable. Roses, tar and licorice are some of the nuances that emerge over time. The Meriame acquires greater darkness and weight as it sits in the glass, while never abandoning its elegant, graceful personality. Tar, menthol, camphor and licorice leave a lasting impression on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

    The Wine Advocate

    Barolo Meriame opens with earthy tones of forest floor and bramble followed by lively tones of black licorice and cherry liqueur. This is a delicate, feminine wine with very good staying power.
