Occasional Wine Note: We had a chance to visit this vineyard in 2022 and while the tasting lineup delivered up and down, this Barolo was the absolute star of the show. Brilliant blend of violets, cherries, leather, licorice, tobacco, and tell-tale gripping tannins. This is a fantastic Barolo at a price that just makes it a tremendous value. This one should be in your cellar and can be for decades.

    Critic Score: 95

    The 2018 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is not super intense, but it is balanced in its own way. The wine is subdued but complete with softly yielding tannins to support an elegantly streamlined mouthfeel. Bricco delle Viole is a high and cool growing site in Barolo at 400 to 480 meters in elevation with characteristic Sant'Agata marl soils with fossils. The wine represents a selection of fruit from over seven hectares. With fermentation in steel tank and aging in large Slavonian oak, you are invited to a silky, lifted and beautifully delicate experience with an accessible personality.

    Heady aromas of violet, camphor, leather and tobacco lead the way on this fragrant red. On the palate, tightly knit, fine-grained tannins accompany ripe Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry and licorice. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Drink 2025–2035.
