This is a big, elegant Barolo, certified organic, from the La Morra village in the north-east corner of the region. 

The vineyard is in good company… it’s on the same hill as the iconic Brunante vineyard, and looks across the road at the Cannubi vineyard, even more legendary. Wines from both spots easily fetch €100+.

It’s a typical traditional Barolo style… big tannins, but also has lovely softness, gentle spice and sweet fruit.

It’s drinking great now as 2017 was quite a warm season, but it will definitely get smoother and rounder over time.

Serena and Gabriele Cordero are a brother and sister duo from Alba in northern Italy.

I've known Serena and her dad Gianfranco for years at Naked Wines, so I knew exactly who to ask when I was looking for some special Barolo and Barbera for WineSpark.

Serena recommends beef tartare with... you guessed it… white truffles.
