Aging: Aged in 225 - liter French barrique for about 24 months and then in bottle for three months.

Ratings and Reviews

94 Points - James Suckling (2015 Vintage):
"Assertive oak influence that is well-matched to the intense and powerful fruit. The nose is filled with ripe red to black cherries and hints of orange zest. There’s an open weave to the tannins that tightens handsomely into the finish. Shows class. Try from 2023." - (January 25, 2019)

Antonio Galloni's Vinous
(2015 Vintage):
"Dark cherry, plum, chocolate, licorice and sweet spice all give the 2015 Barolo Pernanno a good deal of forward appeal to match its succulent, open-knit personality. The ripeness and radiance of the year come through loud and clear in this lush yet mid-weight Barolo. In 2015, the Pernanno comes across as a bit simple and built for the near-term, but, then again, these wines have a track record of aging gracefully. So, let's see what happens." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2019)
