Wine EnthusiastTruffle, fig, underbrush, toast and chopped mint aromas emerge in the glass along with a whiff of cocoa. The firm palate shows dried black cherry, cinnamon, clove and star anise alongside assertive tannins that need to unwind. Drink 2018-2024.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba feels very ripe on the nose and palate. It shows slightly less depth and complexity as a result. The bouquet delivers Morello cherry and dried blackberry followed by barbecued spice and campfire ash. The mouthfeel offers moderate richness and power.

Wine SpectatorOn the earthy, meaty side, this Barolo elicits cherry, licorice, leather, underbrush and spice flavors. Complex and elegant, just tailing off on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2029. 1,500 cases made.
