'In Silvano Bolmida, I recognise a rare talent, exceptional even in a region that is blessed with many fine producers of genuine genius.' Mark Savage, master of wine. 'He is driven by more than average intelligence and curiosity, and the result of such a deeply enquiring mind is the development of a profound ‘savoir faire’, an ability to realise the full potential of his exceptionally fine ‘terroir’.'

Spicy, floral and perfumed and with notes of cherry, licorice, and tar on the palate. The Barolo wines undergo a very protracted fermentation, with up to 50 days on their skins, the effect of which paradoxically, is not the exaggeration of the somewhat fierce nebbiolo grape tannins but the greater refinement of them. As a result, his Barolo is ready to drink when it is released for sale a year after the bottling.

Like Francois Mitjavile, Silvano Bolmida is a fast learner and it is his understanding of his vineyard that will prove the bedrock of his success. Never afraid to experiment in order to learn, he sees himself neither as a modernist nor a traditionalist, in this area where there has been fierce debate between the two schools of thought during the past three decades. His aim is to analyse in order to understand better, not to ignore the past, but to learn from it and improve on it if possible. He knows that he owes it to these prime-sited vines in the famous subzone of Bussia to ensure that the wines he produces are worthy of their origins and the results have been increasingly spectacular over the last five vintages.
