Vigna "La Rosa" Barolo DOCG

2012 Italy Piedmont
94 Points

Fragrant blue flower, woodland berry, underbrush, scorched earth and grilled herb are just some of the aromas that float out of the glass. The dense, succulent palate doles out ripe raspberry, black cherry, chopped mint, clove and cinnamon framed in velvety tannins that lend structure and finesse.

94 Points

Enticing scents of wild berries, violets, grilled herbs and white pepper take center stage in this structured wine. The taut palate offers succulent red berry, clove, cooking spice and licorice flavors alongside a network of firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2018-2031.

2007 Italy Piedmont
96 Points

This Barolo comes from Fontanafredda's La Rosa vineyard within the commune of Serralunga d'Alba. It's a denser, more robust and earthier version of their Barolo labeled Serralunga d'Alba· Fabulously long and balanced, it's a gorgeous wine with layers upon layers of excitement. It has a modern patina without losing any of the traditional mixture of savory and fruit flavors found in top notch Barolo. This young Barolo simultaneously bombards and caresses the palate.

Barolo La Rosa delivers bold, dark concentration with sweet spice tones of almond paste and vanilla cream backed by sharply focused aromas of red berry, cassis, plum and mocha. In the mouth, this beautiful Nebbiolo boasts a linear but long-lasting feel.

Vigna "La Rosa" Barolo DOCG

2005 Italy Piedmont
91 Points

The 2005 Barolo La Rosa is a graceful, floral wine laced with perfumed red fruit, roses, sweet spices and minerals. The La Rosa possesses gorgeous textural richness in a soft, approachable style, with a long, refined finish that rounds things out. Today the wine comes across as quite primary, but with some additional time in bottle it should develop additional tertiary nuance. The tannins gain on the finish in this deceptively medium- bodied Barolo.
