The grapes used to make this Barolo grow exclusively in the Marchesi di Barolo's 'Cru Storici' vineyards, situated in the municipality of Barolo, on hills with a good slope composed of clay and limestone soils, alternated with firm layers of gray sandstone and covered by quartz sands and very fine silt. Nebbiolo is the eclectic variety par excellence of Piedmont: from firm clay and limestone soils, it extracts plenty of nutrient minerals and trace elements that enrich its structure; from loose soils rich in sands and silt, it takes fragrant and spicy scents. Marchesi di Barolo obtains a harmonious blend that sums up the characteristics of the vintage, determined both by climate and by the specific mix of microclimate and soil type of each vineyard.  

Garnet-red in color with ruby reflections. An intense aroma with clean scents of roses, vanilla, roasted hazelnuts, licorice and spices. Full, elegant and full-bodied flavors with recurring hints of the olfactory sensations. Classic touch of tar and oaky notes in perfect equilibrium on the finish.

It is so wonderful to find a perfectly aged 2014 Barolo to drink now through 2030. We tasted and loved this paired with an array of Italian dishes at Flavia's Cucina in Asbury Park, NJ.

The 2014 Barolo del Comune di Barolo reveals unexpected depth and layering in what is a slightly more accessible vintage. You don't need to wait ages before drinking this Barolo. The bouquet opens readily with cherry, blackberry and fragrant wild rose. The mouthfeel is direct and sharp with tangy, sour fruit on the close. This wine will flesh out and grow in volume with more cellar aging, but you could also opt to drink it in the near and medium term.
