Tasting notes
Mature leather and spices, ripe sweet core of fruit with underlying freshness and tension. Structured palate, firm tannins, showing power, tarry notes and dark fruits. “The 2015 Barolo Villero is one of the better ones on record, marked by an enormous structure and power to its classic profile of dark berries and currant. You could give it plenty of time to evolve in the cellar, or open it in the short-term to breathe next to a platter of prosciutto, culatello and mild cheeses.” 94 points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advokate (June 2019)

Organoleptic characteristics
A strong and well-rounded wine, Barolo Villero reflects a soil richer in clay and limestone than that of Rocche di Castiglione, located in the same town. The bouquet offers intriguing and dense scents of violet, red fruits, cocoa and liquorice. The complex tannic texture displays a delicate sweet finish.
