Wine Enthusiast 93
"Classic Nebbiolo aromas of red berry, leather, crushed flower and a balsamic note unfold in the glass. The full-bodied palate doles out juicy black cherry, licorice and tobacco alongside firm, refined tannins. Drink 2018–2026."~K.O.

Wine Spectator 90
"An overtone of chocolate marks this solid yet elegant red. Cherry and strawberry details vie with the firm tannins as this stretches out on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2028. 5,000 cases made."

Mirafiore

View 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.

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

Patience Is Rewarded

"Let me start by saying this wine needs AT LEAST a few hours to open up. Once ready, your sense of smell is completely taken over by chocolate covered cherry, rose petal, clay, and orange peel. With one sip you will be instantly warmed by this full bodied wine with flavors of tart red fruit and earthy truffle components. The tannins get bigger as the wine lingers on your palate with high acidity and high complexity. Great wine to gift or treat yourself with!"
