"Here's a great value for Nebbiolo watchers. The Ellena Giuseppe Barolo displays soft tannins, bright fruit flavors and balanced acidity. The bouquet is redolent of wild berry, cassis, tilled earth and blue flower.'' Wine Advocate Magazine
"Aromatic, offering floral, licorice and spice notes surrounding a core of cherry. The fruit is more prominent on the palate, where accents of mint and leather also peek through. On the elegant side, with fine balance and length.'' Wine Spectator Magazine
”Bright red fruit with tinges of violets, tobacco and citrus rind. Medium-bodied with lightly chewy tannins, bright acidity and more orange rind and a twist of nutty vanilla right at the end. Traditional feel to this. Tasty, too.” James Suckling
''The Barolo 2018 vintage has produced some delicious, open-knit and approachable wines due to moderate acidity and ripe tannins, as well as good complexity displayed. But mostly, it’s just very tasty!'' Aldo Fiordelli, Decanter Magazine
