Fruit for this wine comes from a 1.2-hectare site with classic calcareous soils. The 2018 Barolo Brunate is very different from the other two wines in this portfolio. Brunate shows a higher level of intensity and boldness with dark fruit, sweet plum, rusty nail and garden soil. This expression is also best equipped with integrated tannins and freshness to continue on a steady aging trajectory. I love that subtle note of sweetness that appears on the finish. This is a 5,800-bottle release.

Ripe red berries with floral aromas follow through to a medium-bodied palate with fine, firm tannins that for now are coated with very bright, tangy fruit flavor. Very intense and tight, even racy, this needs some time for the flighty edges to settle down and the real core to expand. So youthful. Try from 2024.
