Decanter 96
"Intense aromas of perfume and sweet Indian incense, fresh oranges and generous cherry fruit on the palate, give way to powerful but well-integrated tannins. A wine with great ageing potential."

James Suckling 92
"Aromas of cherry and sweet tobacco follow through to a medium body with firm and slightly astringent tannins that need some time to soften. In the end, linear and classy. Nice combination of fruit and fine tannins. Drink or hold."

Wine Advocate 91
"The 2013 Barolo impresses for its purity of fruit and its seamless integration. There are no rough edges here and the wine glides clean over the palate, leaving a long and silky impression. Wild berry fruits and light touches of toasted spice add to the intensity. Smoke and crushed flint make for pretty contouring."

Mirafiore

View all from Mirafiore
MirafioreThe 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.

Tannins are harsh, need to use a decanter.

William

Wait for it, but not worth the wait

"Translucent, medium bodied at best, still tannic (pucker up) wine that considering where it is now can only get better, maybe. 2/5 apples. Apple Pie Bill"
