Description

The name Mirafiore is both new and old, associated as it is with the wine estate in Serralunga d’Alba founded by Emanuele, Count of Mirafiore and Fontanafredda, the son of Victor Emmanuel II and Bela Rosin. A name first established in the 1870s, rising to international renown only to disappear in the third decade of the following century; a name which remained dormant for more than seventy years until its reappearance today. The wines are new and old too. New because their complete disappearance from the marketplace decades ago leaves now an opportunity to create a powerful re-emergence; old because the method of vinification they have in common provides for strict observance of rules which can be traced back to the most refined and rigorous of Piedmontese traditions: long macerations on the skins, lengthy maturing, the use of medium-sized oak casks; and it all starts out from perfectly ripe, healthy grapes. Mirafiore is an ideal and set as an icon by Farinetti to represent ‘a life of value.’ Establishing an environment at the estate to express this, he has created fondazione E. di Mirafiore, which includes a theater, library, a forum of philosophers, and a permanent schedule of relevant events.

Awards:

Wine Spectator 90 points – An overtone of chocolate marks this solid yet elegant red. Cherry and strawberry details vie with the firm tannins as this stretches out on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2028. 5,000 cases made. -BS (Feb 29 2016)

Wine Enthusiast 92 Points – "Leather, red berry, cake spices and balsamic aromas come together on this fresh and enjoyable wine. The smooth, subtle palate doles our wild cherry, cinnamon and clove supported by supple tannins. It's already extremely drinkable."

Winemag 93 Points- "Classic Nebbiolo aromas of red berry, leather, crushed flower and a balsamic note unfold in the glass. The full-bodied palate doles out juicy black cherry, licorice and tobacco alongside firm, refined tannins. Drink 2018–2026."
