Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “This wine is now in a magic spot with eight years of maturity from the 2012 vintage, as the tertiary flavors are just entering the profile. The Tortoniano label is best known for its soft inviting fruit and elegance, showcasing a more feminine side of Barolo. Well, it’s silky texture and exotic nuances are on full display today. The nose reveals notes of dried cherries, roses, potpourri, and black tea. On the palate, sweet cherries, blood orange, cinnamon, cocoa, tobacco, a touch of smoke, leather, truffle, and underbrush all join the party, adding an umami element to this richly layered expression. The wine becomes more herbal and tea-like on a dry and coiled finish that hints at further aging. But for today, what’s not to like? This is simply fun drinking, seamless Barolo, delivered at a ridiculously fair price. Let the wine breathe an hour or two for best results.
