The Mirafiore winery was founded after being transformed from farming to a house of wine-making in 1878. Named in honour of Rosa Vercellana who was anointed Countess of Mirafiore by royal decree. The wines of Mirafiore are a clear and precise reflection of vintage and site delivered through very traditional wine-making practices of the north-west, being extended time on skins as well as ageing in clean, larger format oak casks. Situated in the Fontanfredda village in the heart of Serralunga d’Alba, Mirafiore has access to some of Barolo’s finest and most classic vineyards.
Deep ruby-pomegranate color. Expressive, serious Barolo with smooth, raised nuances of strawberries, undergrowth, liquorice. Mature, voluminous, three-dimensional taste. Refined tannins and velvet texture. Rating: 98 Points; Daniele Cernilli; The Ultimate Guide to Italian Wine 2017
Beautifully elegant and with a fine finesse the nose is a joy - deft layers of rich, ripe fruit, alluring, smoky tobacco and subtle leather notes. The palate is inviting, heady with flavours of caramel, burned sugar, sweet spice and framed with silky smooth tannins. Great nose, great finish, amazing potential.

An alluring bouquet of truffle, dried cherry, floral and tar leads off, followed by flavors of cherry, spice and leather. Mineral and tobacco notes chime in as this cruises to a long finish. Full of sweet fruit and spice, this reveals a hint of licorice in the aftertaste. Drink now through 2030. 1,666 cases made. Rating: 96 Points; Bruce Sanderson; Wine Spectator
Dark fruit, sage and cocoa, spice and new leather. Full bodied, silky and fleshy, all chocolate, cherries and raspberries strapped with new leather and spice, ripe and smooth, fair acidity, and a powdery tannin finish, laced with sweet herbs and cocoa. It’s lush and approachable now, but showed no signs of tiring after being open for a day. Tasted: Jun 17; Alcohol: 14%; Price: $180; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2017 - 2027+; Rated: 94 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
