Tasting Note:

Coffee bean and camphor then lovely bright fruit. Bright, easy approachable Barolo this shows plenty of energy and vitality. A very attractive open fruit profile that offers great drinkability already. Sumptuous red and blueberry fruit with crisp upright tannins and mouth-watering acidity. Made from a selection of grapes from 45 year old vines across five different Crus from the Castiglione (30% percent) and Serralunga (70%) communes. The wine is aged in large slavonian oak "botti" / barrels, so there is very little oak influence.
