Tasting Note:

One of the great Castiglione vineyards, the same vineyard as Scavino’s Bric dël Fiasc but named using the standard Italian dialect as opposed to that of Piedmont. Aged in large Slavonian oak “botti” and barriques with 20-25% new oak for 24 months. Less of the liquorice than the Margheria but still very spicy, every bit as powerful but there is somehow more subtly to it though. A great all-rounder, very much the classic version of a modern style Barolo, all tar and roses, aromatic ripe fruit but with gripping structure. Dense but silky tannins, ripe summer berry fruit, dried flower, blackthorn, brown sugar, Asian spice. A juicy precise and haunting finish that betrays touches of flower mixed with savoury spice.
