"Decadent aromas of dried berries, chocolate, meat and spices. Hints of cedar and sandalwood. Full-bodied, layered and beautiful with velvety tannins. A gorgeous finish. Drink now or hold."
"Beppe Caviola aims for elegance and drinkability and hits the target thanks to the careful use of large barrels and post-ageing concrete. Harmonious and velvety, cherry and spice aromas with a round finish."

"Aromas of rose petal, incense and underbrush lead the nose. The savory palate offers sour cherry, clove and tobacco alongside firm fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2020–2028. - KO"

"Elegant and savory, featuring a flash of cherry flanked by leather, eucalyptus, tobacco and tar flavors. Tips toward the tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2032. 290 cases made, 150 cases imported. — BS"
"This Barolo is a rather rich ruby red with orange reflections. The nose expresses balsamic and spice characteristics with clear hints of forest floor and menthol and ethereal touches of chocolate and tobacco. Elegant and silky in the mouth with a rich, dense structure that persists to the long, harmonious finish." - Winery
