"Coal dust and graphite with some very attractive, sweetly ripe plums and cherries. Tarry accents, too. The juicy tannins are captivating, drawing fresh and zesty red-fruit flavors in long, upbeat fashion. Launches long and holds in succulent, impressive form."

"All of the fruit in the 2015 Barolo Enrico VI comes from Villero, the vineyards just outside the town walls of Castiglione Falletto. These calcareous limestone clay soils, with lots of iron and magnesium, traditionally allow for more finesse and lighthearted elegant aromas. However, this warm vintage shows more black fruit and is characterized by balsamic and other herbal intensity with licorice and aniseed. It offers great structure and a richness that really sticks to the palate. This would be a great choice for lamb with mint sauce."

 

96 PointsRobert Parker's Wine Advocate

 

"Marked by new oak, this red sports plum and cherry fruit that offers sweetness, as well as notes of leather, tar, spice and tobacco. Dense tannins ply the finish, yet this finds balance, if in a more muscular style. Best from 2023 through 2040."
