|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
Camilla is their Barolo classico and it is produced with grapes from different vineyards whose soils are similar in terms of age and composition. Barolo Camilla is elegant and beautiful. It represents the harmony and the balance of a traditional Barolo and it distinguishes for drinkability and pleasantness every vintage. The aromas are ample and floral with nuances of spices. The palate is gentle with fine tannins balanced with the typical structure, which can be appreciated in youth for those who love the energy of Barolo that reaches its best expression with a few years of bottle age.
Juicy and firm, setting the stage for macerated cherry and raspberry fruit complemented by hay, iron and earth. Compact and dense, despite a linear profile, with fine length. Best from 2025 through 2042. 2,500 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
Balsamic aromas of menthol mingle with dark spice, underbrush and blue flower. The full-bodied palate offers cherry marinated in spirits, licorice and a hint of coffee bean alongside taut, close-grained tannins that grip the close.
An ample 25,000-bottle release, the 2018 Barolo Camilla represents a blend of fruit from Raviole and Borzone (in Grinzane Cavour), Roere di Santa Maria (in La Morra), San Lorenzo di Verduno (in Verduno), Bricco Ambrogio (in Roddi) and lastly from Badarina (in Serralunga d'Alba). This is an ambitious, all-encompassing blend that is especially accessible in 2018. It offers a harmonious bouquet with wild berry and rose. The tannins are soft and yielding, and you can start enjoying this Barolo without waiting too much longer.
The 2018 Barolo Camilla is soft, fruity and very easy to like. A burst of ripe red and plush berry fruit, orange peel, spice and lavender, emerge in this floral, fruity Barolo. Silky tannins wrap around soft contours in this supple Barolo. The Camilla is very nicely done, especially for the year.
