Notes from the Winemaker:
Ruby red with garnet reflections and a complex bouquet of raspberries, strawberries and spearmint; the palate expresses an immediate roundness with mellow flavors and texture, which are all balanced by lovely tannins and a pleasant finish.

Vineyard:
One vine yard in the Monforte district, one in Serralunga and another vineyard in Castiglione Falletto. There are about two hectares (nearly five acres) of low Guyot - trained, southeast - facing vines averaging 4,000 - 4,500 per hectare (1,620 - 1,821 per acre); 20 - 30 year old vines planted in clay soil.

Aging: Aged in 225 - liter French barrique for about 24 months, followed by three months in bottle.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - James Suckling (2015 Vintage):
"Love the generosity in this wine for this muscular vintage with plenty of fruit to buttress the powerful tannins. Full and chewy yet succulent and fruity. Drink in 2022.

89 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous (2015 Vintage):
"The 2015 Barolo from Cascina Bongiovanni is bright, floral and nicely lifted, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. All the elements are nicely balanced. This is an especially silky, fruity, soft Barolo. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2019)
