Note

Serralunga d’Alba. Tasted blind. Concentrated mid ruby. A little closed and brooding and with notes of herbs. Supple and round and almost a little easy-going. Approachable, soft and generous fruit finish with grainy tannins. Not very Serralunga-like. (WS) 15%. Drink 2019-2026

Note

Serralunga d’Alba. Mature mid ruby with bricky rim. Lifted, perfumed sweet strawberry and spice nose. Sweet and ripe palate that perfectly maintains a mid palate weight. Elegant and almost a little sour. Bags of powdery tannins and plenty of strawberry fruit on the finish. A little populist and certainly does what it says on the tin. (WS)

Note

Rather haunting perfume. Manages to seem light-bodied even with 14.5% alcohol. Marked acidity and ferny-like freshness. You could almost drink this already with pleasure! But there is no particular sweetness. Great fun. Even if not for the very long term.

Grinzane Cavour. Maturing and just mid ruby with a bricky rim. Lifted cherry with a hint of hot iron. Concentrated cherry and bags of coating tannins. Not a real unity (yet), but serviceable. (WS)

Note

Roddi. Light ruby. Fresh autumn leaves on the nose. Sweet start and then masses of acidity and tannin. Very youthful indeed. Still quite jagged with a note of bitterness on the finish at present.

Note

Grinzane Cavour. Mature mid ruby with a bright orange rim. Leafy cherry fruit on the nose and rather sweet cherry and gingerbread on the palate. A little rustic in structure and fruit, and not really complex. Accessible though, and can be approached already. (WS)

Note

Bricky red. Gentle aroma. Savoury gentle red fruit, with slight note of undergrowth, and mild tannins, or at least they seem like that but they build in the mouth. Fresh, delicate and yet long. (JH)

Note

Grinzane Cavour. Pale ruby with broad orange rim. Sweet nose marked by oak and hints of fruitcake. Good acidity. Already hugely accessible and supple, but perhaps a little too forward to be truly in the Barolo league. (WS)

Note

Serralunga d’Alba. Maturing mid ruby with a narrow, orange rim. Sweet gingerbread and dried notes on the nose. Complex waxy cherry fruit with depth on the palate and a little unexpected after the singed nose. Dramatic, powerful, grainy tannins. Very unusual and satisfying and long and tactile. (WS)

Commune of Roddi. Palish ruby with watery orange rim. Balsamic, quite mellow strawberry fruit with structuring acidity. Firm, but not overpowering, tannins on the finish. Just a little rustic, but certainly long. (WS)

Note

Roddi. Mature-looking mid ruby. Lifted and expressive nose. Sweet dried fruit promises sped-up evolution, but has good overall balance, length and well-judged tannin. Mid term. (WS)

Note

Serralunga d’Alba. Deep, maturing ruby with orange rim. Hay, hints of liquorice and lurking, hidden fruit. Seems old school in its dried-fruit spectrum, with massive but very impressive grainy tannin. (WS)

Note

Grinzane Cavour. Maturing ruby with broad orange-tinged rim. Dusty sawn-oak nose and sweet candied fruit. Palate is rather simple at this stage and high acidity makes tannin look dry. (WS)
