LE VIGNE Barolo 2014


Tasting notes

At nearly a decade of life, the Barolo Le Vigne from the difficult and wet 2014 vintage surprises with its freshness and vivacity.


On the nose, fruit and floral aromas intertwine, with dried roses and macerated raspberries dominating. On the palate, the wine shows good balance and is entering its window of best drinkability.


There is harmony between the elements of fruit, acidity and tannins, with a round, mature mouthfeel that should continue to drink well for 10-15 years.

One senses both the difficulty of the vintage and the hard work required to make good wine in 2014. Most important was the timing of the work - not simply doing it, but doing it at the correct time.


The Le Vigne 2014 is drinking beautifully and refutes the notion that 2014 was a throwaway vintage - this is a delicious, transparent wine.

Evolution of the vintage 2014

The 2014 vintage, despite being one of the most complex to manage in recent years, gave way to very pleasant surprises as a result of favourable end of season conditions, which gave us high quality in the vinified grapes.

The spring, following a mild winter, came rather gently but prematurely.


The amount of rainfall in the summer was above average, with real "water bombs" on a few occasions, although these were quite contained yet intense. Particularly significant were the rains of the 23rd and the 29th of July, which however had profoundly different outcomes: in some areas 63 mm of rain were recorded in a single day, while just 15 km away only 13 mm.


The month of September was undoubtedly positive from a climatic point of view, with a good diurnal temperature shift, significantly contributing to grape quality and phenolic maturation. Nebbiolo is the varietal that responded best to the beautiful climatic conditions at the end of the maturation period. Where the operations of thinning and cleaning of the bunches were carried out correctly during the complete vegetative cycle, excellent results were achieved.


As time passes, our wines come to reflect all of our precedent efforts and choices, both in managing the vineyards and curating the wine cellar.
The essence of Nebbiolo, its unique complexity, is fully coming to life, manifesting the greatness of this variety so much valued by lovers of classic vintages. 

Harvest took place from October 10th until 18th.
