Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita
Brilliant, deep garnet colour with slight orange reflections. Its bouquet is ample and complex, with notes of violet and pleasant hints of cinnamon, clove, vanilla and cherry. The flavour is rich, harmonious and slightly dry, and gives way to a long lasting aftertaste where floral and liquorice tones predominate.
Tebavio was the name given to the leader or king of the native population of Piedmont in the 2nd century BC
Score: 93 points. A wine with dried fruits, spices, cedar and chewy tannins, yet everything is together. Intense character here. Needs a few years to come together. Best in 2016.
Score: 91 points. Barolo Tebavio is a thick, well extracted expression of Nebbiolo with red fruit tones, plum, sweet vanilla and ground coffee. The wine feels yielding but dense with a plush texture and a soft, silky feel. Like many wines from the 2007 vintage, it requires less aging (five years or so) to reach its optimal drinking window.- M.L.
Score: 90 points. A hint of vanilla on the nose and palate adds a modern feel to this cherry- and berry- laced red, which is open and elegant, with moderate tannins. Balanced and long. Best from 2014 through 2025. 1,600 cases made.- B.S.
Score: 90 points. Barolo Tebavio delivers a wild, untamed nature with aromas of wet earth, blue flower, underbrush, white mushroom and wild berries. Those aromas are a bit muddled at first but unwind with time in the glass to reveal a solid, firm whole. In the mouth, it is streamlined and tight- M.L.
Score: 93 points. An enticing Barolo, tasting of cherry, raspberry, menthol and licorice. Vibrant and harmonious, with complex flavors playing out on an elegant frame. Spice and mineral accents grace the finish. Best from 2014 through 2026. 1,600 cases made.- B.S.
Score: 92 points. Tightly wound, this is a dense tapestry of cherry, licorice and spice flavors, with hints of tar and eucalyptus. This hangs together necely, but is compact now, needing time to relax and stretch out. Fine lenght. Best from 2014 through 2030. 1,600 cases made.- B.S.
