Tasting Note:

Full, enveloping and bursting with character. There is plenty of sinew, depth and flesh to this but is svelte and vibrant with it. A complex and very complete array of flavours, fresh and dried herb, fresh cut flower, crunchy berries and fruit liqueur. Even better for this being on the reserved side, the power is well-harnessed which makes for a Barolo of great refinement as well as intensity. A blend of fruit from La Morra, Serralunga and Castiglione communes, this is regularly one of the very best blended Barolos around, surpassing many single crus for quality.
