Other Reviews....
Aged for 12 months in barrique plus a further 12 months in larger botte, this Vignarionda is pretty classic. The concentration of fruit is great: generous yet elegant cherry and strawberry fruit are accompanied by a straw note, while the liquorice finish shows youthful grainy tannins, refined and sweet, along with refreshing acidity. It's a little early to tell for sure, but it should age quite well. Drink: 2023-2045.

Aldo Fiordelli - Decanter

Very perfumed and classy on the nose with roses and lavender. Aromatic. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a pretty presence in the glass. Very polished and ripe tannins for the vintage. Drink after 2027.

Lifted and floral, the 2019 Barolo Vignarionda takes on notes of wild strawberry, cinnamon, roses, and resin. More refined in its tannins and elegant, it is both powerful and gentle, with raspberry liqueur, bergamot, and dusty earth. It balances the strength of Serralunga with great finesse and is an absolutely beautiful wine from Luigi Pira. Drink 2025-2045.
