"Mirafiores classic Barolo balances delicate floral scents and fresh cherry flavors with firm, ripe tannins. A touch of leather and spice add dimension to the fruit flavors, increasing its appeal."

"Lovely scents of perfumed berry, blue flower, underbrush and wild mint take center stage while the ethereal graceful palate offers crushed strawberry, sour cherry, star anise and a hint of white pepper alongside lithe tannins. Bright acidity lends balance and energy. Drink through 2024." ~K.O.

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.
