Sourced from the nine southernmost rows of vines in Arione, which is the southernmost Cru in Serralunga. In Enzo's words, the vines of Arione produce his most "pinot-like" Barolo. He makes the point that there is a misconception that all Nebbiolo from Serralunga ends up masculine and sturdy - The more you move South towards Roddino the most finesse you end up with due to altitude change, and that finesse reaches its apex on this steep, high elevation site.

The grapes are sustainably farmed, picked by hand, and fermented with native yeasts. 70% new French, 30% used French oak barrels for 15 months. Blended and aged in used large French oak casks for an additional 15 months. Soil is sandstone and clay with layers of grey marl. 150cs made.åÊ

"Good deep red-ruby. Black cherry and licorice on the nose, along with some sexy oak tones that are less exotic than those shown by the 2005 offering. Then sweet, dense and suave, boasting more primary fruit than the earlier vintage. This possesses deep medicinal reserves to support an extending development in bottle but there's nothing tough about it. Finishes sweet, serious and long. I find this much creamier and sweeter than the 2005, with stronger and riper material to support its oak element. "
