Brothers Aldo and Riccardo Seghesio established their winery in the township of Monforte and began bottling wine from their ten hectares in the La Villa cru in 1988. Dedicated to producing natural, high quality wines, the estate takes part in the 2078/92 EU regulation, which aims to encourage environment-friendly farming methods and improve the preservation of natural resources in rural areas.
Seghesio Barolo is big, concentrated and structured with a fresh, fruit-driven personality and a velvety texture. The nose offers inviting notes of crushed cherry, plum and dried rose petal which carry through to the smooth, complex palate. Underlying earthy notes of licorice, dried mushroom and tobacco complement balanced acidity, sweet tannins and a long, persistent finish.
“A supple, cherry- and raspberry-laced version, with a layer of firm, dusty tannins under the sweet fruit. This is well-balanced and should come around relatively soon. Licorice and tobacco accents add complexity.” - Wine Spectator
"The 2011 Barolo is everything an entry-level Barolo should be. Creamy and inviting on the palate, the 2011 offers lovely depth, with expressive balsamic notes that add nuance and just enough acidity to balance things out nicely. The 2011 is up-front and giving, but without being too imposing." - Vinous Media
"Balanced and refined with silky tannins and lovely berry, hazelnut and flower. Medium to full body, fine tannins, fresh finish. Drink or hold." - James Suckling
