We've often said, finding value in Barolo is hard to do. That's why we are so excited about the Mirafiore Barolo 2018. Reminiscent of Burgundy, the Italian wine region of Piedmont is comprised of many small family owned vineyards with an obsession to produce some of the world's finest wine. The Casa E. di Mirafiore lives up to that reputation, as the estate was originally founded in the 1870s by the son of King Victor Emmanuel II. Located in Serralunga, the Mirafiore Barolo has a sumptuous bouquet, with clear-cut overtones of ripe plums, tobacco, mint, rosemary, cinnamon and dried mushrooms. Very dense, closely-woven tannins give the taste a well-knit sensation, together with softness and balance. One for the cellar, don't miss Wine Spectator's top pick under $40!
"A supple style, this delivers juicy black cherry, plum, tar, leather, iron and spice flavors. Broad and well-endowed, with dense tannins that exert themselves on the finish for now. This should come together nicely in about 3-5 years. Excellent length. Best from 2026 through 2043. 4,000 cases made." The Wine Spectator, 93 Points
