    Barolo "Ornato" DOCG 2015

    Exotic, beguiling and constantly changing in the glass, Ornato 2015 impresses the palate with convincing nuances and energy. Red stone fruits, crushed gravel, orange zest, spices and white pepper create an exotic Barolo full of charm and high recognition value. The 2015 will cover all the themes Serralunga is all about - a fantastic performance by Pio Boffa and the entire Pio Cesare team. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Sparkling, brightening garnet red. Opened with a pronounced earthy note of truffle and liquorice, followed by saffron and plums. Hearty and gripping on the palate, opens with firm tannin in many layers, stretches a wide arch, lay aside for a few more years!" Falstaff

    "Maturing ruby with watery bricky rim. Fine, sweetly perfumed nose with earthy, minerally notes. Spicy cherry fruit on the palate with polished tannins and ripe acidity. Tannins build up on the finish but are backed-up by elegant fruit. Fantastic chew and length of fruit." Jancis Robinson

    "Piercing scents of cherry, currant, eucalyptus and licorice signal this tightly wound red. Fluid, with a supple texture that dissolves into a matrix of dense tannins. The ample sweet fruit lingers nicely." Wine Spectator

    "With powerful fruit from Serralunga d'Alba, the 2015 Barolo Ornato is a plush and dense red wine with a contemporary feel that prizes richness and overall accessibility. There is a level of softness here that permeates the entire wine and adds to the already-intense aromas of red fruit, blackberry, spice, tar, asphalt and candied orange peel. This structured Barolo is best tasted with a platter of Alpine cheeses and jellied honey." Robert Parker

    "The fruit for this wine is sourced from Pio Cesare's plots in the Ornato vineyard in Serralunga d'Alba. It has a big, bold palate impression with lovely fresh acidity framing a core of delicate red fruits and heavier plummy notes. The tannins are fine and chalky, and despite this vineyard's reputation for producing heavily structured wines, it's relatively light on its feet, juicy and moreish. Although delicious, it seems a waste to drink it so early in its life - I would leave it for at least another couple of years for all the elements to fully integrate and then decant after opening. Vinified in stainless steel before spending 18 months in barriques and a further 12 months in botti." Decanter

    "The aromas are so complex yet subtle wtih wet earth, mushrooms and dark fruits. Dried flowers as well. Full body, chewy tannins that are ultra-fine and powerful, yet there is a finesse and beauty to them as I said from barrel. Classic, great nebbiolo." James Suckling
