On the palate, subtle hints of nuts and forest floor add depth to the experience, all seamlessly integrated with well-balanced tannins. Robust yet elegant, this wine exudes both power and poise, promising a bright future for many vintages to come.

Brandini

Agricola Brandini, has carved its own unique path in the heart of Barolo. The Bagnasco family, owners of four coveted cru sites in La Morra, embody the motto that achieving an ideal doesn't always follow the easiest path. Their dedication to preserving local traditions is unwavering, evidenced by their organic vineyards and spontaneous fermentation. Within their cellar, an array of large wooden barrels, ranging from 20 to 60 hl, provides the perfect environment for wine maturation. The crown jewel, Barolo R56, adorned with the coveted 3 glasses of the Gambero Rosso, showcases their winemaking prowess.
