Valfieri Barolo 2005

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Harmonious and sophisticated, from a spectacular vintage, the Valfieri Barolo shows a lovely, perfumed nose and light cherry and raspberry notes underneath the muscular structure of tannin. This wine will certainly reward your patience a few years down the road, and will drink beautifully throughout the next decade.

In 1961, Rosangela Clerici Riccadonna (who belongs to one of Piedmont's oldest wine-making families) founded Valfieri at Alba, dedicating this new and original cellar to the production of Alba's traditional, classic wines.

More than thirty-five years have passed since the Cellar was founded, and during this time the wine sector has changed dramatically. The economics of wine has become globalised. But Valfieri remains faithful to traditional values, which doesn't mean banal repetition of past methods, but rather a continuous effort to improve production, to make wines whose quality is perceived and not imposed.

Baking spice, cinnamon, cloves, roasted coffee, rose water, plums and sour cherries dance in this modern and unusually ripe Barolo.
