COLOUR: garnet red with orange reflections
PERFUME: complex, it ranges from liquorice to leather, nutmeg, violet and jam
TASTE: fresh, pervasive, very persistent, with sweet tannins.
Wine Advocate 94 points - A brooding style, with sweet black cherry and plum flavors offset by the tobacco and tea notes and austere tannins. Comes together in the end, offering a mix of fruit, spice and tea on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2035.—B.S.

2008 SEGHESIO BAROLO LA VILLA
"The 2008 Barolo Vigneto La Villa emerges from the glass with generous dark red fruit, flowers, menthol, pine and licorice, all supported by firm, massive tannins. French oak gives the wine volume and textural depth, but without being intrusive. A plush, authoritative finish rounds out this stylish, totally fabulous Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028."
