The vineyard Pressenda, located in the heart of Castelletto cru in Monforte, is the homeland of our homonymous Barolo. The challenging 2012 vintage brought fruity and elegant features emerging both at the nose and in the mouth, where there is a sparkling finesse and harmony with a captivating acidity. Tannin appears with a less pronounced force, and it strengthens Pressenda's drinkability and balance. Although it offers now a good readiness to drink, it lends itself to a long aging in the bottle.

Wine EnthusiastEarthy aromas of truffle, new leather, dark-skinned berry and dried herb aromas lead the nose. It's savory and full bodied, doling out crushed raspberry, juicy black cherry, ground clove and tobacco alongside solid, refined tannins. Drink through 2027.

Wine SpectatorRipe cherry and currant fruit is offset by tobacco, tea and tar notes in this elegant, densely structured red, which is tight and awkward now, but all the components are in the right place. Best from 2022 through 2040. 900 cases made.
