Winemaker Notes

Barolo Vigna Giachini is intense and opulent, vibrant with fruit and the vanilla-cedar aromas that oak confers. In my opinion Giachini is the most representative cru of the Annunziata subzone of La Morra. It displays all the trademarks of this splendid vineyard area: fragrance and length, soft supple tannins and a fullbodied generosity dressed in flawless austerity. A profound wine.

A wine with very attractive aromas of ripe blackberry, fresh forest mushroom and raspberry. Full-bodied, with amazing fruit concentration and powerful tannins. The power and richness of this wine are superb. A fantastic effort for the vintage. Best after 2014.

Full, deep red. Sexy, high-toned aromas of plum, brown spices, marzipan and chocolatey oak; lifted by a note of cinnamon. Juicy, intense and penetrating but a bit youthfully imploded. Can't match the Arborina for early texture or flesh but this tactile, juicy wine boasts strong soil tones of minerals and brown spices and finishes with firm tannic spine and excellent lift. 91+?
