About the Wine

Barolo is meant to age. This stunning 19-year-old Barolo is at its perfect drinking window. It has developed an exceptional character and complexity. With every sip, this aged Barolo reveals the culmination of years of maturation, offering a truly unforgettable tasting experience for those fortunate enough to indulge.

Mirafiori Winery is a 300-acre Bionatural Reserve in the beautiful Serralunga d'Alba, at the core of the renowned Barolo region, right there with iconic producers like Giacomo Conterno or Roberto Voerzio, where Barolos can often exceed $300.

It dates back to over 160 years. In the 19th century, a nobleman with a modern vision, Emanuele Alberto Guerrieri, Count of Mirafiore, son of Italy's first King, embarked on a remarkable wine journey. He founded Casa E. di Mirafiore, a winery that aimed not only to craft exceptional wines but also to create a thriving village. This village, a real community, housed 250 people, all employed by the winery. Even today, 15 families call it home. Every corner of this place tells a unique story, making it Italy's first storytelling village.

Casa E. di Mirafiore has always been ahead of its time. Since 2018, it has proudly held the title of an Organic Estate. With vineyards in the Barolo and Fontanafredda subzones, it exclusively produces wines from its estate-owned vineyards, including the renowned Barolo DOCG crus, Lazzarito, and Paiagallo.

This Barolo is crafted from carefully selected grapes cultivated in estate vineyards located in the villages of Serralunga d'Alba and Barolo.

Aging: 5 years of maturing before it is released. 3 in medium and big size oak barrels, 1 year in large concrete tanks, and 1 in bottle.

Tasting Notes: 100% Nebbiolo. Deep garnet red color, while its intense, clear-cut nose hints at spicy aromas of baking spices with tertiary aromas of leather, then cocoa, mint, black cherry, rose and dried mushrooms. Its sweet, ripe plum flavors have velvety tannins that blend nicely with a taste of luxury. The very long finish is warm and worthy of meditation. This wine will continue to benefit from additional time in bottle through 2035 but it’s damn delicious now. ~ Greg Martellotto

Reviews

Bright, intense ruby garnet. Catchy nose with notes of licorice, some dried plums, with leather and cardamom in the background. Substantial and straightforward on the palate, unfolds with robust, firm tannins, hearty, lots of dark fruit, with a long aftertaste in the finale. ~93 Falstaff

A lighter style, with lively acidity accentuating the assertive tannins. The cherry, raspberry, tobacco and earth flavors are beginning to mellow. 50 cases imported. ~91 Wine Spectator 

Ripe and rich nose of dark fruits and chocolate. Full body, with soft and velvety tannin and a fruity finish. Just coming around now. Enjoy. ~90 James Suckling
