The wine shows layered aromas of mint, fennel, plum and spices before rich red currant flavors, with rose petal and more mint notes. On the palate the acidity is balanced and the tannins are silky, leading to a long finish. This wine is a superlative pairing for beef roasts,lamb, game and hard cheeses.

Wine Enthusiast"Cellar Selection" Crushed violet, herb, wild berry, leather, exotic incense, eucalyptus and balsamic aromas carry over to the elegantly structured palate underscored by a mineral vein. It's bright and fresh, with young, tightly wound tannins that need time to unfurl. Drink 2018-2031.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Barolo Tortoniano shows savory characteristics of cured meat and spice with some balsam herb intensity to lift the bouquet. The mouthfeel is streamlined and tight. This wine clearly reflects the warmer conditions of the 2011 growing season and you easily recognize that extra intensity and concentration throughout this wine. The results are softer, rounder and more generous than you normally get from Michele Chiarlo's Barolo Tortoniano.

Wine SpectatorA saline, savory element underlines the cherry and plum fruit in this red. Soft and relatively open, with moderately firm tannins on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2025. 6,500 cases made.
