Vigna Elena is a wine for Barolo purists, uncompromising in its style and character and disregarding of taste trends and market demands. To create this honest Barolo, we respectfully and meticulously follow the experience our grandparents handed down to us. We use the same nebbiolo clone (100% Rosè for many years now), cultivation system and yield, use of native yeasts, and aging in large barrels. These practices, in addition to the unique microclimate of the Langhe, combine to create a wine worthy of its history and tradition, capable of raising the profile of the Barolo appellation. The label of Vigna Elena attests to its excellence: a chick drawn by Elena for her mother Nadia and her father Valter when she was three years old. Ever since then, it has been the symbol of the wine.

Pro Reviews

Wine Spectactor (WS)


Warm tones of brick, leather, licorice and steeped cherry ride the tensile yet dense structure in this mellowing red. Savory, with a mineral, saline finish. Best from 2018 through 2029. 250 cases made.–BS

Wine Advocate (WA)


It’s hard not to be smitten by the 2009 Barolo Riserva Vigna Elena. This is a gorgeous expression with a compelling sense of depth, flavor intensity and extraction. This wine is made with a rare Nebbiolo clone called Rosè. It was not produced in 2008 because damaging hailstorms ruined much of the fruit that year. Riserva Vigna Elena exhibits enormous attention to detail with micro aromas of wild berry, spice, cola, licorice and white truffle that are fused together in a penetrating aromatic front. The tannins finely textured and silky. Drink date 2016 – 2034. – Monica Larner

Vinous Media (VM)


“The 2009 Barolo Vigna Elena is rich, pliant and expansive on the palate. Sweet red cherries, tobacco, mint and spices meld together in an ample, powerful Barolo built on pure texture…it is remarkably open and expressive.” — Antonio Galloni/VM – 93-95 pts
