This is dense and mouth filling and although the acid is not high there is a tremendous mineral, chalk quality to this that lends a distinctly fresh, savoury quality that balances out the powerful, ripe fruit. A superb effort. A prime south and south west facing 55 year old plot in the Serralunga d'Alba commune. Aged in the traditional way, for 28 months in large slavonian oak casks - "botti."
