Overview

First vintage was 1995, Runcot is made only in the best vintages entirely with fruit from the Gavarini vineyard. It is a beautiful example of Nebbiolo. This wine is very impressive with great ageing potential and is the most modern wine from this winery. This superb Barolo will be at its best in a few years and will provide great drinking to age 15, perhaps more.
