Wine Spectator:

"An ethereal red, boasting the elegance and finesse of the vintage. Cherry, strawberry, leather, licorice and tobacco notes are shaded by oak spice, but this has a core of mineral that drives the lingering finish. Shows harmony and restraint overall. Best from 2017 through 2032. 200 cases made. "

Product Description:

"Barolo Riserva Gramolere is produced only in the best vintages and made with a selection of the best grapes of the Gramolere vineyard. 1,500 to 2,000 bottles made. When the Riserva is not produced the grapes are used for the regular Gramolere.

Manzone’s high-elevation vineyards (1,500 feet) and their extreme steepness foster naturally low-yielding vines which produce wines that are approachable while young, yet remain amongst the most concentrated and longest-lived of all Barolos. Principles of natural, non-invasive agriculture are followed in the vineyards: no insecticides or fertilizers have ever been used. Minimal amounts of SO2 are added and all the wines are unclarified and unfiltered.

Traditional-style Barolo, fermented using natural yeasts with long skin contact. Ageing is carried out in tonneaux (500lt and 700lt in size) for 48 to 54 months.

An ethereal red, boasting elegance and finesse. Rich and enveloping with floral notes and ripe fruit aromas along with oak spice, tobacco and leather. Warm and well-structured in the mouth with vanilla and tobacco well integrated with the sweet, powerful tannins. Best enjoyed with truffle-based dishes, game, braised beef and aged cheeses." - Importer
