"Floral perfumes and minerality come out vividly, where red berries and sour cherry dominate the nose together with gentle scents of violet petal, rose bud and a hint of pine. Palate is succulent and full of energy, with very refined tannins and outstanding purity."
- Winemaker Notes
"You'll find enticing scents of rose, violet, woodland berry, tobacco and a heady whiff of pine on this fragrant, full-bodied red. The juicy, delicious palate shows focus and intensity, doling out succulent raspberry, ripe red cherry, blood orange, licorice and baking spice framed in polished tannins. It's already showing beautifully but will also offer years of enjoyment."

"The 2015 Barolo Bricco Delle Viole is a delicate and pure expression of Nebbiolo. The wine shows its naked beauty with pride, provocatively semi-dressed in lacy, floral aromas of wild rose and pressed violets. At this young age, the wine exhibits a gentle mix of fruity and floral characteristics that merge into the bouquet with intrepidness. The fruit from this vineyard within the Barolo township has maintained its freshness and crispness despite the heat of the 2015 growing season. I think it would be a lovely match for a veal piccata and cream sauce, with parsley and capers."
