A bit of rose over strawberry confiture greets the nose followed by  a little meaty braised veal sweetness along with limestone, quinine and mint accents.  Soft and open on entry with juicy acidity highlighting the  small cherry fruit. This is a bit simple but shows a nice blend of richness and freshness, with good power and follow through on the long, limestone edged, small cherry fruits and gently herbal finish. 91pts

Limestone on the nose is followed by notes of cut grass, sweet mint, a little root veg , and a hint of toasty coffee. There is  lovely balance and elegance in the mouth with its black cherry core framed by gentle notes of  peach and limestone. There’s a great aromatic lift to the  lovely finish, which shows great tannins in a  cool and compact style that is full of fresh fruit accented with a tarry note and lent real drive by the juicy acidity. 92pts

Very savory and slightly smoky with more of a red fruit character than the San Giuseppe but also darkly scented with a bit of rubber on the edges and emerging notes of macerating flowers and gentle notes of middle eastern spices (cardamom/coriander) 3 Very elegant in the mouth with very fine, polished tannins and solid vibrant acidity, mouth filling without weight 3 Rich red plumy/wild strawberry fruit with notes of maduro tobacco, green anise seeds and hints of dried fruits in the mouth 2+ Tannins clamp down on the finish turning a bit drying yet the dried strawberry fruit of the finish lingers 2+ 92pts

A little steeped herbal, marmite nose, with a touch of caramel and root vegetables  filling in under the core of small, slightly stewy red berry fruit topped with a touch of espresso foam. This shows some  big fruit on any, that leads to a nice core of tarry dark fruit and tobacco, all nicely cut with soft tannins.  Like the nose this is very savory, and not terribly fruity, but intense and fresh with a big tannic finish that does soften nicely with air. The finish is a little medicinal with a cherry cough syrup aspect and a hint of pomegranate fruit.  This really does soften quickly with air, don’t hang on to these. 89pts

The 2006 Barolo Riserva Vignolo literally sparkles on the palate with layers of brilliant dark red fruit, flowers, mint and spices. It shows striking inner sweetness and perfume, with big yet well-integrated tannins and breathtaking balance. This is ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2006 F Ili Cavallotto Barolo Vignolo Riserva 750ml

Fragrant offering mint menthol and tar aromas with a dried cherry note sneaking in on the palate. Elegant and balanced with a dusty chewy quality on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2023. -BS Wine Spectator.

Winemaker's Notes:

97 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: This is a stunning and vibrant Barolo that defies the heat of the vintage thanks to 47-year-old vines, amazing terroir and noninvasive winemaking. It shows floral aromas of violet layered with spice and truffle, while the palate delivers rich wild cherry, mint and cinnamon. This already shows excellent complexity, but it's still young. Drink after 2022. (Sep 2013)
