| 96 Points, James Suckling: "A big and powerful Barolo with chewy tannins and lots of fruit and structure. Full body, chewy tannins and just so much fruit. Layered and complex. Just a baby. Drink in 2022." (January 2017)
95 Points, Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Barolo Enrico VI is fabulous. The deeply spiced bouquet, firm spine of tannin and dark fruit are all signatures of this renowned Castiglione Falletto site. Explosive and powerful yet very much medium-bodied in build, the 2013 exudes pedigree. Succulent black cherry, menthol, licorice, cedar and new leather add the final shades of nuance. This is one of the best young versions of the Enrico VI I can remember tasting." (February 2017)
A Barolo of high standing, both austere and complex. Deep red garnet in colour. Delicately spiced bouquet (notes of eucalyptus, liqorice and menthol), mature fruit (liqueur soaked cherries, blackberries and prunes) and hints of violets and medicinal herbs. Powerful on the palate, lightly acidic and fresh. Lasting finish.
Service Temperature: 16.5°C
Food Pairing: An aristocratic wine that finds its ideal match with game, jugged hare, braised beef, chamois, roe deer, wild boar, venison, and pigeon. Superb with dishes garnished with white truffles from Alba, like cardoon flan with fondue and duck ravioli.
The wine evolves slowly and continually in the bottle. Tremendous expression over decades.
