Wine Spectator 93
" Though firmly structured and tight now, this is dense, with ripe black currant and black cherry fruit, along with leather, tar and mineral flavors. Well-proportioned, but needs time to harmonize. Excellent length. Best from 2018 through 2035. 8,000 cases made. " ~ BS
Wine Enthusiast 92
"Leather, red berry, cake spices and balsamic aromas come together on this fresh and enjoyable wine. The smooth, subtle palate doles our wild cherry, cinnamon and clove supported by supple tannins. It's already extremely drinkable."
" Aromas of rose petals and dried cherries give way to flavors of plum, black cherry, spice with tight grained tannins and a firm structure and a long, complex finish. " ~ Winery notes
MirafioreView all from Mirafiore
The winery was founded in the 1870s by King Vittorio Emanuel II of Savoy and named for his son (with Countess Bela Rosin), Emanuele, Count of Mirafiore within the Fontanafredda village in Serralunga d'Alba. The name was lost from the estate in the 1940s and passed through several owners until Oscar Farinetti bought the Mirafiore name once again. The wines of Casa E. di Mirafiore are made exclusively from the traditional varieties of the Langhe.
Respected winemaker Danilo Drocco follows traditional Piemontese vinification practices including long maceration and aging in large oak casks. The essence of Casa E. di Mirafiore comes to life at the estate in the Fondazione E. di Mirafiore, which includes a restaurant, library, and theater where the winery hosts poetry, music, and speaking events.
