Piedmont Italy, Winemaker Notes - The wine shows layered aromas of mint, fennel, plum and spices, rich red currant flavors, with rose petal. On the palate the acidity is balanced and the tannins are silky, leading to a long finish.


Wine Enthusiast 93 pts - "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. Cellar Selection."
James Suckling  92pts- "Very solid and rich center palate here with dried berry and chocolate character and hints of hazelnuts. Full and velvety. Give this two or three years to soften."
The Wine Advocate 91pts - "The 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. "
