"The 2018 Barolo Arborina is a powerful, burly wine that is going to need a bit of time to soften the firm young Nebbiolo tannins. There is plenty of Arborina energy and tannin that comes alive with a bit of coaxing. Dark cherry, gravel, cloves and licorice give the 2018 a decidedly somber feel in this vintage." -Vinous

"The 2018 Barolo Arborina is born close to home, in the sunrise-facing vineyard that starts just below the family house and winery. This pretty wine reveals a delicate embroidery of wild rose, rusted nail, spice and clove-dotted orange. Barrel aging is with 20% new oak for 24 months. The finish is long and linear, ending with a powerful 15% alcohol. This vintage saw 6,200 bottles released." -Monica Larner

Wine Spectator

WS 93
"This is bursting with red berries—strawberry, currant and cherry—shaded by floral and rose hip accents. Firm and lively, with a sleek frame and a long, fruit-tinged aftertaste. Fine energy and harmony. Best from 2025 through 2042. 415 cases made, 45 cases imported."
