Elio Filippino 2007 San Cristoforo Nebbiolo (Barbaresco)
Fully loaded and packed tight, this rich Barbaresco ushers forth aromas of ripe cherry, wet earth, smoked bacon, black stone and licorice. There’s a strong spice element as well and the wine tastes thick and ripe in the mouth with firm, finely textured tannins.
Elio Filippino 2008 San Cristoforo Nebbiolo (Barbaresco)
This deeply structured and layered Barbaresco delivers thick aromas of bitter chocolate, mature cherry, cola and leather. It’s a young wine, with tight astringency and firm tannins, that needs to age another five years in the bottle before the wine is ready to drink.

This expression of Barolo from the Castiglione Falletto area of Piedmont delivers sweet spice notes of cinnamon and clove over a solid base of red fruit, cassis and dried berries. Lighter and more delicate tones of cola and licorice appear in the background and the wine is firm and polished in the mouth.
